No idea, but I don't think there was any logic we relied on, and 
actually the alphabet was changed at a certain point to use a larger set 
(more compact strings: compare "65535 File", "FFFF File", "k,J file"). 
So in the latest version identifiers were not hex numbers.

And identifiers were juxtaposed to the human-readable form so that you 
could have a "en-US kid build" with strings like "2,J Save", "tH3 Open" 
and an "it kid build" with strings like "2,J Salva", "tH3 Apri". This 
message confirms that we had kid builds in more languages, so this 
partially corrects what I was saying (link is of course dead):

Provided it's unique (or autoincrementing, as you wish), it will be 
fine, unless someone has better knowledge and can make a better use of 
the identifiers. But I really believe that uniqueness is all we need.
