Otherwise this forum is going to be filled with complaints from guys who cloned a Win7 VM.

In the former case, all MAC addresses, UUIDs, serial numbers, etc. would be kept, in the latter they'd be re-generated to keep the identifiers unique. The choice really must be made by the user because only the user knows how the clone will be used. Sometimes the user wants an exact copy which is in some way a backup of the original, in other cases the user wants to start with a known state but continue using them as separate entities.
