Gene identifier synonym table standard and/or repository?

Greetings GOphiles,

We are working on some new software that uses GO annotation, and we would 
really like it to support all GO-annotated organisms.  Our chief barrier to 
doing this is the lack of gene identifier synonym tables for each organism 
(so that users can enter gene names rather than being restricted to MOD 
IDS, e.g., SGD or MGI IDs).

Is there an agreed GO Consortium standard for gene identifier synonym 
tables (could be as simple as tab-delimited text with a synonym-uniqueID 
pair on each line).  If so, is there a repository for such files?  Or is 
this a GMOD question?
