[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Resource ID uniqueness

Hello all,
Is this a bug? While testing EAD import workflows, I noticed that our installation doesn't force uniqueness between:

-          "" (all in one id field)

-          "1-2-3-4" (all in one id field)

-          "1" "2" "3" "4" (broken out across all 4 id fields)

-          etc.... many variations are possible

Since I expect users will be importing either marc or ead data, I'd like to make sure they can't create "" or "1-2-3-4" via EAD import, if "1" "2" "3" "4" version already exists. This might be less likely to happen with manual record creation, but it looks like a user could inadvertently duplicate an id that way too.
