Thanks for writing this up. My only question now is... what existing
uuid implementations map here?
As for Deltacloud, we generally use whatever unique id the backend uses;
that id is used in generating the URL to the resource (image, instance,
etc.) and is reported as the id attribute for that instance.
We only require that the id is unique across resources of the same type
for that backend. In some cases, those id's are chosen by the user when
they create the resources (e.g., instance names in some backends), in
others they are generated by the backend cloud.
There are a few cases where we generate unqiue id's if the user doesn't
supply one; one of them is the instance ID for Gogrid.
