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
