Three new types of UUIDs have been proposed in the latest draft of the next version of RFC4122. Full text of that draft is in [1] (published 21 April 2021; draft period ends 21 Oct 2021).

Support for these should be included in uuid.py for Python 3.11, with backport for 3.9 and 3.10. The timetable for Python 3.11 should fit with the end of the IETF draft period.

Implementation should be similar to the existing UUID classes in uuid.py, the prototypes in [2], or even parts of my own uuid6 version [3].
