Please let us have the client provided part first and *then* the UUID. I
believe this would increase the readability a lot. For example

instead of

foo at example.org/86224876-a3cf-4555-8835-57286109fa03-thermostat

let's have

foo at example.org/thermostat-86224876-a3cf-4555-8835-57286109fa03

What was again the envisioned separator used by Bind2 here?
