There seemed to be an "issuance strategy" discussion about starting the
year off with id 1000, which is a neat hack to deal with leading zeros,
at the cost of making the 5 digit transition a little earlier.  Is this
something still under discussion/decision, or is the leading zero
element locked in with the selection of option B?  No need to respond if
this is coming up in the next set of announcements/calls.
