I would keep it the way it is now, because you assumption is correct: Only the 
unique id really identifies an account with AqBanking unambigously.

Not all banking protocols use a bank code, also, some banks might choose to 
use the same account id for multiple accounts thus requiring the triplet bank 
code, account number and account type for unique identification.

So using the unique id (which BTW never changes within AqBanking if you are 
continuously using the same configuration) is the best way for applications 
to safely identify AqBanking accounts.
