One advantage of keeping it as an opaqueToken is that from the developer point of view you can be pretty certain of it's provenance - it probably came in a postMessage via a message port you opened. This makes it easy to decide how much to trust it. 
With a UUID/String you have to do a lot more thinking about how it got to you before you decide to trust it.  I don't think the benefit is sufficient for the risk.
