At least in Debian, this only results in reverting to the old "sdxn" format 
(with the potential problems that UUIDs were intended to deal with - it doesn't 
support "LABEL=root".

Personally, while I see the point, I find UUIDs a bit of a PITA when 
migrating/upgrading stuff. Labelling the partitions is a lot easier than 
writing out the UUID and entering it into a system that's being 
upgraded/migrated. Or trying to remember what partitions you're going to end up 
with - yes I've had issues when moving VMs where I've got my xvdXn's mixed up !
