I have drafted http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/CommitIDs
and added it to the schedule.  The proposal is simply to add the
following text to the naming guidelines to the "Snapshot packages"

If the upstream revision control system provides some sort of unique
commit identifier, it may be appended to the `%{alphatag}`:

This has been in use for a while in a few instances, so it would be
good to consider it officially.
