Along with the "Keep media objects" checkbox, perhaps add a second one to reset the OBJE counters to zero before importing the GEDCOM. Thus, the OBJE numbers remain constant across GEDCOM imports (as long as multiple GEDCOMS in the same site are loaded in the same order each time).

I have added scripts that do this to my GEDCOM pre-import processing scripts; would be nice to have an option incorporated into the GEDCOM import page.
