When the useUUIDs method returns true, it will be assumed that the IDs
of objects in the resource are universally unique. Any object removed
from the resource will still remember its UUID and any object attached
to the resource will be assigned a generated UUID, if it doesn't already
have a remembered UUID. Changing this method will have no impact on how
a "standard" XMI file will be parsed. I.e., if the input has UUIDs and
has references to them, those will work regardless of this setting.
The important impact of changing this method is to ensure that every
object is assigned a UUID without having to call XMLResource.setID
explicitly to achieve that. UUIDs are very powerful but tend to cause
