Hi Erin, DOI identifiers would be appropriate for such documents.   
Furthermore, ESIP already has an account with the California Digital  
Library's EZID service, which provides both a web UI and a  
programmatic API for creating DOIs (and other types of identifiers).   
Contact myself or Nancy Hoebelheinrich for details.  -Greg
