There was a proposal and a discussion regarding how this datatype would be
before I started developing it. We decided to go with the format proposed in
RFC. Unless there is strong case, I doubt any non standard formatting will
be accepted into core. IIRC we where also opposed to support java like
formatted uuid's back then. This is no different.

Gevik.
