I think the "question-ID" should be the actual question text, for at
least two reasons:

 - If you try to use a number, then you will have a lot of trouble
   trying to manage numbers - keeping them unique, and maintaining the
   correspondence with the question text.

 - Using the question text will make it easy to internationalize using

I suggest you look at the gettext documentation, in support of both
