Exactly. Anything goes. In fact, if you manually create the
configuration it is a good idea to not use the same number of digits as
the panel, just in case ;-)
The panel creates the name of the rc-file from the name and the id it
finds in the panels.xml file. The id is just a string, it does not have
to be digits, although I personally do find it useful to number the
manually created default configuration files.
