Not, not by definition. However an uuid generator shall geenerate uuid in a way that make collisions highly improbable. IMHO this verdict implies that an uuid generator should use the cryptographic RNG if available.

The behavior after fork() is clearly a bug as it will generate lots of collisions on systems that fall back to random.
