I think a suffix version, or an abbreviated form, would be very helpful.
 When trying to understand grid behavior through the WUI I often find
myself looking at the first few characters of each ID.  Prefixing all of
them with a common string would required me to search past the common part
to find, which wouldn't be difficult, but would slow me down.  A suffix
wouldn't matter, and an abbreviated form might be best of all.
