Of all the code changes that break the documentation, grammar and typo corrections will be an insignificant minority.
There's no need to do something fancy like a hash -- just use the literal format string as the identifier. It's already in the documentation code anyway.
Another idea, more searchable than actual text but less of a development PITA than a number: an alphanumeric message ID. Have the macro turn it into a name that would make the compilation fail if it isn't unique.
