If you're using GetPlayerInfoByGUID, it's probably because you're dealing with people who are talking in chat, or doing something else where no UnitID is available.

If a UnitID was available, there'd be no reason to use GetPlayerInfoByGUID, because all of the information it provides -- class, race, gender, name, server -- is available through other, more specific, UnitID-based API functions.
