I don’t know why your proposal was rejected or why you didn’t get any  

I like how you believe in your idea, and indeed – the current GUID scheme  
needs some improvements.

You will face some very interesting challenges. Probably most important:

- backwards compatibility
- current misuse of GUIDs as public URLs in some plugins and even in core
- import and export of databases

I don’t have the time for a real mentoring, but if you need someone to  
talk about the project and your ideas or for code reviews, you can contact  
me off list.
