The selctor only has to be unique within the zone. I'll add key
rollover as an additional consideration. If all this is automated,
you might as well do the key rollover on a periodic basis.

Using UUID is more a matter of personal flavor. I don't see much
gain in doing it unless there is some data storage requirement.
