I believe that in principle you can write a UDEV rule to make a symlink
of consistent name for specific devices.You might track the UUID for
per-device tracking or some kind of class for generic "I just plugged in
a thumb drive" stuff.

Disclaimer: I'm not a udev guru and cannot write such a rule for you,
but I've seen examples in udev tutorials.

Maybe these days there's some handy tool to auto-roll a udev rule..
