If you're talking about the FreeDB/CDDB DISCID, that's: _not_ unique
per disc (see how often one gets several fuzzy matches from FreeDB),
and isn't computed the right way by all tools, and so the same disc
can have multiple discids, and the same disc pressed (well, mastered)
by different distributors can have differing track parameters and thus
How do I know this? Because I gave up on the two public Perl CDDB modules
and wrote my own which gets the DISCID by feeding track info to a CDDB
daemon purely because it was the only way to make the disc submissions
So the DISCID would be fine, provided your ripping tool actually computes
it right (or asks CDDB).
BTW, for the box set example it would be good to have an identifier for
the set too. "COLLECTION"?
