Using handles as map keys

Jeff Care (1.0k3833) | asked Mar 18 '11, 4:48 p.m. warns against using item handles as map keys.

The javadoc for says that IComponentHandle is used as the key for the returned map.

Is it safe to use handles for map keys? Is it only safe for certain kinds of handles?

I searched for references for Work Item handles in the SDK.

package DTO_ResolvedWorkItem2 checkForParentCycles(List<DTO_ResolvedWorkItem2> items)

Uses handles as map keys. I would assume it is safe then. Otherwise you could use the ID.
