That field was never intended for hyper grid use, but is populated by the UUID of local users when they create assets.

To replace a UUID native datatype with a 128 char string is a particularly bad idea for all kinds of reasons.

A better approach to accommodate the need to identify creators would be to create a new table for the purpose that will hold all the information required to identify an asset creator and relate to this table everywhere the information needs to be displayed.

Adding a new table will both make for better storage and indexing, centralise the information that is now repeated across tables and enable foreign key operations.
