I think that we should work toward specifying something that does what
we've learned (over several years of work) we need to do, and that does
not add any additional pain or unnecessary complexity.

yes, this is the approach I favor. typed name components allow us to
identify the 'infrastucture' data in name components, while allowing us
to set aside some number space for application-defined components. code
that just wants to compare names or identify component boundaries needs
to be able to treat the components as 'opaque', of course.
