Fair enough.

#ifndef BOOST_NO_CPP0X
    constexpr uuid() : data_() {}

That said, std::array in the draft is still an aggregate, not a
"trivial class/type", which makes me think there's still a reason to
use aggregates.

Would construction from an initializer list be sufficient to meet the
requirements for constant initialization in [basic.start.init]?
