In connection with a discussion on the tdwg-tag mailing list, I am 
roughly agreeing with a proposal Rich Pyle makes to the effect of having 
separate LSIDs for digital representations (e.g. media files) of 
non-digital objects (e.g. a scene in the world). Because it is easy to 
see the distinctions for media files, I've carried that discussion to 
the Image Wiki at the page 

I hope you will join the discussion there. You can also subscribe to 
mail or RSS notification of changes to that Wiki at
