Hello Roy,

I still do not see your point. Yes, you are right on the social issues.
Nonetheless, locations independent naming schemas are better then location
dependent schemas. I can move my data from a location to a new one and still
use the same name. These people never said that this is the Holy Grail of
the web, and please do not say that URLs are holy grails of the web too.
It's probably the time for you to think twice about this. And I'll repeat
myself: A location impendent schema is better than a location dependent
schema, period. Come on Roy.
