I would like to propose that we resolve issue 4103 by replacing the use of 
the fictitious company 
name "Contoso" and "Contoso ltd." with a more generic "company X" so as to 
avoid any possible
liability on the part of the W3C should the name ever become trademarked.

Additionally, I would propose that all URIs that have the 
"real.contoso.com" domain be changed
to use "x.example.com".

I would also propose that we leave it as an editorial excersize for the 
editors to apply this
resolution as they see fit.

Cheers,
