hmm - is this really "just some questions", some personal curiosity? or 
is it a broader invitation to the community to dig into what's been 
presented in v1 of the TR, with a view to developing the next version?

just to be clear: I do not like the 'naming conventions', I see them as 
a hangover from the bad old days. Since my "application" is mainly 
infrastructure, the conventions do not meet my needs. I don't think we 
can rely on use of magic values in allegedly-opaque name component data, 
and hope for the best. I think we do need to have typed name components 
so that we have clear places to carry special kinds of name information, 
like segment number and version, in a way that is unambiguous.
