Dev: Should UUIDs be base64 encoded?

The IDs are UUID, currently represented in the common UUID format, example:

7625c7e9-38b1-4622-aa71-1ad439c1bced

The same value could also be encoded in base64 encoding, making it shorter:

B2JcfpOLFGIqpxGtQ5wbzt

But then probably most parsers would not recognise it.

Do you prefer the second version?  Do you think it's worth it?
