'uid' fields in Archetypes should be GUIDs only.

It has previously been argued that the AUTHORED_RESOURCE.uid field, inherited into the ARCHETYPE class in AOM 1.4, and similar classes in AOM 2, should accommodate Oids and GUIDs.

However, Oids appear to be rarely used, and leaving this choice available complicates software unnecessarily.

If Oids are needed as ids, we should consider them as 'supplementary' ids attached in a dedicated meta-data field in the AUTHORED_RESOURCE class.
