Calendar Synchronization

It would be nice if there was a field within Salesforce Events and Tasks that could store an external ID for synchronization (length 255 chars).  You have the new synchronization APIs but it would be nice if you could grab an external ID from Salesforce Events and Tasks. This would save a query against a customer's external database for the Salesforce Event and Task ID. 

Providing the Deleted items table and Updated items has made bi directional synchronization almost completely possible.  However one more field would make things just right to complete calendar synchronization with Exchange Server without having to add custom fields to salesforce to improve performance.

Could you comment whether this will be available in future versions.
