Let's simplify the API. One less concept to grasp.
I think there are no use cases for variants in modern tech, check:

[Uid] use one class per type of UUID

(embeds #36064 for now)

Would it make sense to have one class per type of UUID?
This aligns the type system and UUID types, so that one could type hint e.g. `UuidV4 $uuid`.

This PR does so. `UuidV1`/2/3/4 and `NullUuid` all extend the base `Uuid` class, which provides common methods and the factories needed to create each king of UUID.

This means we don't need the `getType()` nor the `isNull()` methods since they can be replaced by instanceof checks.

As expected,  `getTime()` and `getMac()` then now exist only on the `UuidV1` class - no need for any version check nor any `LogicException` anymore.

Each type is guaranteed to contain a UUID that matches its class' type. The base `Uuid` class is used for the "no type" type.
