Yes, :input-file plus (exact) :date would probably do the job as unique

Nothing really, I just thought that the space after 'org-data' is a bit
wasted and that it would be generally usefull to put some unique
'parse-tree-id' there instead of just nil. 

But it may be better to keep the core functionality as clean and simple
as possible and add this kind of info later on if necessary.
