MKR1000 EEPROM/Permament id assignment to device

I love the MKR1000 chip. very nice evolve. I am trying to understand if the MKR1000 has any kind of built in unique id that can be used to identify it. Also, it appears the MKR1000 has no EEPROM. This is a critical need. Flash memory re-writes with every upload and would evaporate any stored 'serial number' or the like. Please add EEPROM to future iterations of the MKR1000. It is absoultely crucial!
thanks

Who are you writing this for? We have nothing to do with the hardware development.
