UUID Reference

UUIDs are used extensively throughout Spectrum. When encountering a UUID in the codebase, it can be difficult to understand what exactly the UUID means, and where it originates from — is it from some standard, or Spectrum-specific?

To solve this problem, this reference documents all of the UUIDs used in Spectrum.
