ITU-T Rec. X.667 | ISO/IEC 9834-8, entitled "Generation and registration 
of Universally Unique Identifiers (UUIDs) and their use as ASN.1 Object 
Identifier components", should be approved at the end of August. It is 
based on Michael Mealling's I-D.
It is in FCD (Final Committee Draft) ballot in ISO and comments can only 
be editorial, so you can already use it.
If you need a copy of it, I'll ask the ITU TSB to send the current draft 
to your Chair.
