U4-6533 - Immutable Ids for all item configurations in the Grid

All grid item configurations must assign an immutable GUID id to them. This includes:

  • Layouts
  • Sections
  • Row configurations

These Ids will be persisted with the pre-values. Then, these Ids will be carried over to the value persisted for the grid on a content item. This way, whenever grid pre-values have been modified, we can easily merge these modifications back on to the grid value maintaining a 1:1 relationship between all items.

A PR was created to enable aliases for these items, but this is still error prone because aliases are mutable.

@Shandem Could we please have this before Umbraco 8? It gives a lot better control when rendering the grid (or just working with the grid in general), so it be awesome to have in Umbraco 7.4. Or even before as it shouldn't be a breaking change.

Otherwise I'm stuck hacking around the core files for most of our Umbraco installations until this is added :(
