At the time of writing, I do not see them being used for inter-package  
references (If my understanding equals yours here, as in "references  
between otherwise unrelated widgets".

The UUID? Well, it actually eases implementations a bit, since an  
implementation can use the UUID as "domain" when requests are made, which  
actually allows vendors to reuse existing infrastructure for security  
checks and so on.
