Gaah, yes. Apparently that placement is correct and documented, and
has been since the beginning.

However, reality always takes precedence, so I think that for now
we'll just have to revert the commit that added the uid: tag, and we
can re-visit this issue when hopefully the tools have been fixed.

"But it's documented.." sadly doesn't fix actual user installations or
user-visible regressions.
