How to distinguish between unsaved drawings via API?

I'm currently building an add-in that creates drawings. When switching between models, the task pane switches to show the appropriate controls for parts/assemblies/drawings. I'm now looking for a way to distinguish between multiple unsaved drawing files. Is there a proper, robust way to do that?

 

Persistent IDs sounded great, but those are only attached to features and entities. I did find this forum topic about file IDs, where it is told that we cannot access the internal file ID. Comparing creation dates would be the best solution.

 

File/Component ID's

 

My problem is that the drawing files are still unsaved. At least by the user. Is there maybe a temp file created somewhere?
