[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Persistence of ref ids?

We've made a couple of decisions internally that assume these ref_ids are persistent.  For example, we're storing these IDs in our Hydra repository as the primary way to link from digital objects to their description in ASpace.  So, naturally, I'm curious about this too.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Persistence of ref ids?

We're curious to hear from the devs or anyone with a lot of experience about whether ref_ids in the system ever change their values. I know they don't upon transfer, and they're not editable from the user interface, so we're fairly certain they are permanent and persistent, but want to make sure before making a couple decisions internally.

Can anyone confirm their persistence/permanence?
