I think that DocumentMarkers will not be able to share the identifiers,
because I would like a unique identifier for each DocumentMarker.

I would like to keep the options open and use a String to store the
identifier. The longest identifier that I can think up is a SHA-512 hash.
This hash is 64 bytes long, or around 100 ASCII characters in Base64
encoding. Is this identifier too large?
