I can't tell if it is more or less trust worthy - that's the point - but 
there are many more ways that a uuid could arrive in my app and be manipulated/tracked on the way. An opaque token ensures that it was minted in this user agent, for this user, in this session and gives you a bunch of origin info too. It can't be tracked or correlated, this makes it much easier to reason about security or lack thereof.
