It sounds like a joke, but frankly `:something()` as named by fantasai has an unexpected elegance to it; "something" is about as broad/vague as you can be... considering this is something that sets specificity to 0 (essentially canceling all specificity), I would say a broad term personifies what you're trying to do here considering the name of the subject matter at hand (*specificity*).

Understandably this isn't intuitive, so it most likely won' be kept, but I felt obligated to remark on the simple elegance of the temporary name.
