Actually the name "sticky" was never mentioned during the F2F. It was 
initially called 'anish-header' and later something like -- 'name to be 
decided later'.

I came up with the name 'sticky' for the draft (didn't want it to be 
called Anish-header ;-) ). The inspiration for the header is the 
behavior of the Unix's sticky bit [1] on regular files where the program 
text portion is "sticky".

I guess I should have called it "miffy-role" ;-)
