lowercase +1

Just curious btw - will the rest of the URL be in suite?

eg: will it be http://www.w3.org/egov/ig/wiki/Main_Page (assuming we 
won't mess with page filenames)

or http://www.w3.org/egov/IG/wiki/Main_Page

(Oh - and while I think of it, should we make the title of the Main Page 
"eGovernment  Interest Group" or "eGovIG" instead of "EGOVIG"?)
