Technical Summary 

    This document defines a new DHCP Unique Identifier (DUID) type
    to be used for identifying clients using Universally Unique
    Identifiers (UUIDs).  The document defines what is meant by
    "universal," excluding several things called UUIDs that do
    not qualify.  The purpose of the document is to allow devices
    that have genuine UUIDs to use those as DUIDs, rather than
    forming new identifiers and requiring the maintenance of tables
    mapping between UUIDs and DUIDs.
