Indeed ORCID could do it for persons.
I will try to use use the existing altIdentifier attribute to refer to orc-id and spase-id. 
I would need it for all elements that could be a person/party, so having it back on contributor would be needed.

However, when the contact/contributor/creator is a team or an organizing, we should use the ivo-id. 
I'll see on real-life examples and come back to you.
