David Dean has suggested Flickr would probably be more interested in
building UUIDs than tenants, so this is as good a reason as any to
automatically allocate multiple UUIDs based on what the object is
tagged with when a UUID is requested.
I've also incorporated most of your previous emails suggestions into
the wiki page, it might be useful to get a comment from Flickr or
Wikipedia about our current thinking, since they are the ones most
likely to benefit from this.
