My initial thought was for an abstract symbol (i.e., a .sym file).
This way "Diode.sym" from my personal library is treated as a unique
symbol from "Diode.sym" from another library.

But now that you mention it, a UUID for a symbol instance in a
schematic is important too, particularly when slots come into play.
Proper design of the slotting system would fix the "footprint for a
slotted symbol is taken only from the first instance with that refdes"
