Sorry, I did it AGAIN. Left out the rationale for even bringing that up.

Whichever kind Debian User brought that topic up in last couple months
said that it's a place where our systems would be tapping into when
bringing things up to speed. If the wrong declaration is sitting in
that position, our systems will stall while they're scratching their
heads trying to figure out what to do next when they can't find that
wrong UUID (or possibly PARTUUID or LABEL) that was accidentally
carried over from another partition or suchly..
