The difference being that once created, the entryUUID will *never* 
change. The seqNumber will be modified every time we will update some 

The modifyTimestamp though can be modified (I don't know if it's a 
REPLACE or a delete/add operation), and has a no-user-modification field 
set to true. I have to check how this is handled...
