Truly anonymous grading?

I understand that the way anonymous grading currently works is that the first student in a course to submit an assignment is ID'd as "Student1," the 2nd as "Student2," etc -- and that those IDs persist throughout the course for all assignments. 


I'm wondering what folks think about this.  It seems less than ideal, since in a small class you could figure out who was the likely first submitters are, especially since the student ID persists.  Wouldn't assigning the ID # randomly be better?
