Ok.  I reviewed the PSDK docs, it seems this is supported from Win9x
and NT3.1 forward.  +1, I'll apply that bit right now.

I disagree here.

"UuidCreate doesn't use the MAC address to create UUID's anymore"

Anymore means that it once did.  And therein lies the problem.

The current PSDK indicates that your statement is only true on XP/2000.
All other versions have this problem.

I will change the docs to reflect that the problem exists only on NT and
prior (all 9x/ME versions).
