Are post and comment number preserved? I don't see that in the
exported XML. Given that most people delete the post and comment with
the ID number 1, every post and comment will have it's number changed.
Any link (internal or otherwise) that points to
http://domain.com/2006/08/17/this-post/#comment-1128 or
http://domain.com/?p=1403 will no longer point to the right object.

Then there are deleted drafts, the empty numbers generated by comment
spam, posts out of order, pages hidden with
wp_list_pages('exclude=1386,1392, etc.

Like I said, maybe it's my eyes. But I don't see the post and comment
numbers in the XML.
