/// A client is usually presented with a directory tree that is the result
/// of composing together multiple backing implementation instances. An ID
/// would be unique within the corresponding instance only.
/// Their boundaries are rather implicit on Fuchsia, as a result of
/// transparently-forwarding directory proxies. It could be common for a client
/// to observe identical `Id`s when traversing a directory tree, when it
/// encounters nodes from different backing instances. Therefore, the ID is best
/// used for debugging and informational purposes.
/// If the implementation also supports [`fuchsia.fs/Query`], the
/// [`fuchsia.fs/FilesystemInfo.fs_id`] field may be used to disambiguate IDs
/// from different backing instances.
