A) What if the record doesn't have a unique persistant id?
B) Why not just use the existing mechanism of CQL?
C) As record metadata, it belongs with record metadata, however we handle

My opinion hasn't changed from the other times you brought it up ;)
OTOH, if the DCMI approve it, then we should make it possible to support.
Changing the requirement to support DCX over DC is a little too far

sensibly. DC as mandatory is there to enable a minimum standard, not
necessarily one that can be used for all purposes.
