db management interface: duplicate vs restore as a copy

Hi all,

I'm looking at the Database Management user interface, and puzzling over the mode field in the Restore dialog.

When you use "copy of an existing database", the only difference I can see is that the dbuuid will be regenerated. Which raises two questions:

1. what is the dbuuid used for?
2. why is a new dbuuid not generated when I use the Duplicate function of the Database Management interface?

Thanks for you insights.
