If the UUID generation was how I proposed in my other reply: On a voluntary basis, with ability for UUID's to have metadata about what the information associated with them may be used for, one could also have a metadata field indicating what /kind/ of user the UUID was associated with. Then people simply installing things for testing, and reporting results from their test rig could have a "tester" flag associated with a UUID used only for testing, and then we can exclude that data from the main reports, while still using it as evidence that a thing may work for some audience. The submission rate for UUID's with the "tester" flag could be allowed to be higher, because it no longer contributes to the overall statistics.
