I would want high performance and low memory requirements.
Should I have trouble remembering which file uses which index, I write a short bit of documentation to remind me as well as a nice header section within the file itself.
A standardized numbering system helps.

as I've explained numerous times, the memory and performance costs are quite minimal.
in a world where 4+ GB of RAM is the norm and where sandbox at its standard operation (with the highest quality stuff) uses way less than a quarter of that, surely everyone can spare a handful of megabytes.

Hmmm...
It'll be hacky, but I think I can retain backwards compatibility, I'll need to start keeping a game side version which is also stored in the maps to update things accordingly, but for now we can assume the absence thereof indicates that it's the old version that needs to be imported accordingly.
Working under that assumption, I can transfer the "index" field as a string into the entity itself.

I'll see how it goes.
Poll's closed, I'll start playing with it, and it seems the majority favoured doing it.
