I don't think i've made a judgement as to whether or not this is a corner
case. What I care about is understanding why the current naming scheme was
chosen so we can have informed debate. So far no one has told me my
obvservations are incorrect. Whether or not this historical usage is an
important consideration is a discussion that comes after we have an
understanding of what the historical usages are.  Without an understanding
of why the current naming scheme was chosen, and how its been used.. we
are not in a solid position to evaluate a change in policy. I challenge
you... as a proponent of change.. to give us your understanding as to why
the current naming policy is in place.

I'm just a proponent of you coming to terms with the fact that your
instinct to become involved in every single thread just wasn't helpful or
insightful this time.   Perhaps there's a chance... however small... that
you might actually be .... gasp .... wrong.   Really, a viable option was
even presented in this thread to deal with your concern.   But if you have
no historical insight or judgement of your own on the matter, let someone
who does pipe in if they think its important, instead of sidetracking the
conversation into oblivion.   Not everything has to be explained to _you_
before proceeding.
