you do not think  org.example.animal.cat is a long string fair enough, I 
personally dislike it its unintuitive and frankly ugly, and truthfully 
it surprises me that you take them so seriously

anyway I give up on you Ian, it doesn't matter what I say you fail to 
see my points or even accept them as valid issues, I have wasted too 
much time on this you can say tomato if you like and Ill carry on 

Best wishes
