Certain basic features, common to all phenomenological models of hadron structure based on the picture of confinement at large distances and effective one-gluon exchange within the confinement region, necessarily lead to the prediction of the existence of a nonstrange dibaryon resonance with quantum numbers IJP=03+, the d*, independent of more detailed features of the dynamics of any of the models. We discuss the qualitative physics underlying this claim, comment on the probable mass and decay properties of the resulting state, and provide estimates of the expected production cross sections in npd* and ±d ±d*..
