There's also the issue that a user can change "123" to "125" and
possibly mess with someone else's resource, unless you use some server
side authentication.  Or just seeing how often the numbers change could
reveal patterns about what other users are doing.  I always think it's
best to encrypt anything sensitive like that, to avoid leaking any info.
