There's a long history of work in this space, mostly over in the IETF -
and historically a lot of concern about the distinctions (or not) between 
the notions of naming, identification, and location.  Historically the
results of this work haven't been that great; the problems are hard
enough that it may not be cost-effective to work on them.

Someone have a pointer to some of this history?  -Tim
