Doesn't 9070 require registration? My original thought was simply to
provide a key for efficient duplicate suppression and cache
management, not to provide a backward map to the master location. If we
require registration for UUIDs, that imposed a bottleneck on
thier adoption. Something similar to a hostid (ethernet address) based
UUIDGEN used in MSCOM or DCE would allow anyone with a net connection to
just start using the mechanism.
