Is there a persistent/stable identifier for AllJoyn devices that persists across restarts (unlike bus name)? Is the DeviceId or AppId field in the About announcements what I want? I thought the Well Known Name could work, but I don't see a way to discover it from the About data, and I won't the value ahead of time.

In my opinion, it should be possible to use the combination of AppId and DeviceId to identify a specific application running a specific device.

The same application running on different devices is expected to have the same AppId. Different applications running on the same device would be expected to have the same DeviceId (which as the spec mentions would be set via some platform-specific means).

AppId and DeviceId are expected to persist across restarts.
