It may not be worth renumbering things at this point, but I would suggest
that you prefix library IDs with the current year rather than an arbitrary
large number. In otherwords More IO would be 2004-01.

This will make it easier to find and refer back to old reviews, since it
conveys useful information and may make it easier to find something
several years from now.

Going forward, you could assign sequence numbers based on the date a
review is formally requested.
