|The ID of a UML element [message #657583]

Does the UML metamodel provide any way to access the ID of an element? They often look like this in the XML:
<element xmi:type="uml:OpaqueAction" href="SomeModel.uml#_dmKHMDjwEeCH9LLYtylVBA"/>
The ID being the part after the '#'.
I'm trying to access the ID in a QVTo transformation, isn't it the metamodel that provides the methods for accessing data like this, rather than the transformation language itself?

The code eObject.eResource().getURIFragment(eObject) doesn't even care
whether anything references that object... Note however, that it will
return the ID if there's an ID but will always return a non-null result

This only works in cases where you're contained in an XMIResource. It
will return null if the eObject doesn't have an ID.
