What is the status of this schema.  It says:

   Make the uids unique. This declares that the "uid" attribute of the
   node, segment, track, area and property elements are all in the
   same "ID space" and have to be unique. It also allows us to
   reference them below.

Is this the goal?  As I understood the current implementation this is
not the case.  So can i assume that it will be the case in future
