Thanks, Lukas. This is excellent. (Note to self: we need to start  
gathering up these test cases and experiences so we can get a quick  
view of what we KNOW about LLD.) Your experience is a good test of the  
concepts and technology. I think we have covered some of this in the  
draft "problems and issues" section of the WG report [1], but I will  
look to make sure that we include the issue of our reliance on names  
as strings, because it is a key problem for sharing, as you point out.  
If you have other ideas about issues or how we word it in the  
document, send that along.
