Unique attributes

I would suggest that each attribute should have a checkbox option called "Unique", while editing or creating a class.

It could be used in forms with user registration, where, for example, the intention is to have unique e-mails between users. Because the attribute e-mail is unique, ez Publish will not permit two users with same e-mail addresses to register.

This unique feature for attributes could be used in many other situations.

I've once commited an extension that sort of does of what you're asking for:
