[Ndn-interest] Standard Naming Convention

Hi Leonid

NDN recommends using unique and consistent names for same Data. For a sepecific movie, the publisher gives it a Name that is used universally.
Thus, every ISP may have the movie in the cache, with the same Name.
If the same movie is published under multiple different names, network doesn't know they are actually the same, and thus won't benefit from caching.

In a class project I made "Content Addressable Repository" that can discover same payload under different names.
The basic idea is to maintain an index of Data objects by the hash of payload, so that Data can be retrieved by either Name or hash.
However, this scheme suffers from routing scalability issue if deployed beyond local area network.

Yours, Junxiao
