p2p summary (kind of)

I'd like to check if my understanding of terms is in accordance with yours
In my world, an UUID is a reference to something, like a C pointer.
A Dewey category is a description of a group of entities, meta-data; like a
type declaration for a C entity.
Therefore, they are two completely different beasts, each with its
usefulness. I think they are both needed (not necessarily in the form of
UUIDs and Dewey numbers, but as a reference to something and a type
description of that something). It's hard to imagine how things would work
without any of them.
In the p2p world, UUIDs (or other kind of unique references) can identify
specific users, or specific services, or specific global data. Dewey numbers
(or other kind of meta-data) can be used in searches, as a complement to
regexps :-), and in describing the thingie that an UUID refers to.
