There has been a request for butler to have a special dimension (maybe a UUID as value?) that would allow datasets to be stored in collections that are not directly related to a dataId.
For example, if multiple cutouts are extracted from a single coadd they can not currently be stored as independent cutouts but must be combined into a single python object and persisted with the dataId of the coadd. If an extra dimension was available that was effectively a unique label, then the cutouts could be stored by adding that dimension to the coadd dataId.

DM-33764 Write technote describing middleware functionality for "campaign management"
Thanks for creating. Description seems fine given how much I've thought about it so far, and I'll probably have some more thoughts after writing up the Campaign Management (Robert Lupton edition) needs in a technote, because I think we should be able to satisfy some different use cases with the same concept.
Jim Bosch added this as a placeholder. Feel free to fix up the description.
