For Canal Digital and Viasat (DVB-S) here in the Nordics and Teracom/Boxer
DVB-T network in Sweden ONID:SID is uniq.

Actually ONID:PID is also uniq (except the "system" (lowest) PID's).

But ofcourse you must use the triple as stated in the ETSI recommendation
when implementing the EIT disassembling.
