I.e. there is a paredefined GUID for that partition; if there are multiple
ones, they'd get the same GUID which sounds like a recipe for desaster to me.

OK, forget that one; Arvin just told me that this is not the ID of that partition, but the type (that was a one-byte value like 0x83 for Linux, 0x82 for swap etc.).

Still that doesn't clarify if there can be multiple ones.
