Presumably your derived class extends Resource and then the ResourceImpl
is still constructed. The problem is that when you deserialize or copy
some instance, you needlessly create IDs...
Probably better is to compute and cache the ID in the getter. That way
there's an ID there is anything asks for it, but until then, there isn't
one and when you deserialize, the value from the serialization will be set.

No, each package must have a unique nsURI.

Yes, that should have been obvious to me given you talked about
specializing the constructor.
So you need to create new packages with new classes.

Thank you very much.
It looks like the "magic" happens in ReflectiveItemProvider.gatherMetaData.
Since its going up to the package and adds all Classes of that Package i thinks its enough to call IEditingDomainItemProvider.getNewChildDescriptors for one EObject (doesn't matter witch) in EPackage.
