[ensembl-dev] C.elegans protein/transcripts share same IDs

Sorry if it's answered before (googled and didn't find answer) - We just noticed that in Ensembl C.elegans transcripts share the same IDs as proteins, while annotating Wormbase protein IDs as a xref.  Is there any particular reason why it was done this way?  The same IDs present an issue for our sequence storage.  We could work around it but it'd be messy.  It seems best if Ensembl could use Wormbase's protein IDs in addition to the transcript IDs too?
