Rename Sheet and Object ID?

I am evalutating QlikView development connected to Team Foundation Sever. What is best practice when it comes to SheedID and ObectID. Should I keep the number from QV (SH01) or should I rename it to the real sheet name, like for example "Dashboard"?  If I reaname it, the XML file for the sheet or the object will have a more understandable name and it's easier to find the right file in TFS.

Any thoughts?

Users won't see the SheetID. It's just an ID that can be used in expressions to reference a sheet. If changing it to a more descriptive name has advantages for you elsewhere (like in TMS) then by all means do so.
