I would agree that a CI name should be some thing that identifies the CI and the serial # should be an attribute.
However if a server is replaced, changing the serial is a very dirty way of updating the CMDB. That CI should be disposed (the status set to disposed), and a new CI for the new server created, then the relationships created. This way the CMDB reflects what has happened, and has an accurate history.
