An object identifier (OID) is an extensively used identification mechanism

once allocated, should not be re-used for a different object/thing.
|How are OIDs allocated and what is a registration authority?||OID registration standards|
At each node, including the root, there is a requirement
for some organization or standard to be responsible for allocating arcs
