How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Approval Requests - change relation from GUID to Device Name

is it possible to change that relationship of request and device from GUID to device name, or even Hardware ID, something that is constant. In perfect environment it is ok, but in the though reality large environments struggling with many issues. One is that Clients are registered with new GUIDs for many reasons. When request is approved and then this relation ship is lost, because new account for the same machine, users are asked to re-request the same app. It has even more impact with new features when we can push software automatically and remove as well. Worst scenario possible (that actually happened to me) is that other admin deleted all obsolete accounts, after the weekend I lost over 3000 request history.
I know that first answer will be, get your environment in order, but not everything is easy to fix.
Change like that would help a lot, and since we are deploying on collections by names, this should not be a big problem.
