Well, I have my own opinion about that, but the course of action  
depends mostly on those people who are using it. No one seems to,  
judged by the complete silence.

As I have found, it is only used in one specific situations: If you  
create a Favorite pointing to a piece of content, then that piece  
gets tagged with a UID, and the UID identifies the content piece for  
the Favorite. So you can copy/paste/whatever the content and the  
Favorite still knows how to find it.
