The SL driver currently assigns "Instance of $id" as the NAME for imported wild VMs.
I think it would be rather trivial to take the 'fullyQualifiedDomainName' property and use that as NAME. SoftLayer seems to require both a hostname and domain property and combines them into this property for us, so it should suffice as a unique identifier; collisions on FQDN are extremely unlikely.
