I'm a huge fan of postponing naming discussions until after work is completed. :-)

Seems to me that people know this idea as tracking selection lists and it's fine to close the issue at this time.

"Issue 1: Should we change the name for something more generic. It could be URL Filtering Lists or something along. The formats allow more applications than just tracking."

My opinion is that the name "Tracking Selection Lists" is okay -- I'd rather have a name that communicates the purpose of the work, rather than a completely generic name. I could be convinced otherwise, but I'd rather focus more on the technical issues at this point.

I move to "close" this issue for the time being. Unless I hear any strong objections, I'll go ahead and strike it form the spec.
