Maybe I am missing something obvious here - or being too simplistic.
But if you're working with a single DB server, and code running on that DB server is the one which allocates the UUID, couldn't the MAC part also be shuffled to the front to also improve clustering?
Actually, in our case we have a small number of server nodes feeding a DB, but each are unique, and clustering tends to only be an issue when exporting from a single server, which ends up being similar
I guess my concern is does this threaten the uniqueness of the UUID?
