There was widespread agreement in INTAREA to adopt this:


I actually intended to reference this—I just got my wires crossed because 
google gave me the link to the other one, which as you say is dead.

The current rev of the homenet naming architecture is pretty thin—I put a lot 
of work into the dnssd stuff, because I wanted to have it pretty solid before 
referencing it in the MPVD architecture document.   If you weren't in homenet, 
it might indeed be worth reviewing my presentation in the meetecho.   Stuart's 
presentation in dnssd might also be worth reviewing.

Anyway, a consequence of the emphasis on the dnssd work is that I had about an 
hour to update the naming architecture document before the submission deadline, 
and the update is minimal, to be as charitable as possible.

Daniel wanted to do another update, but we needed to sync up first, and I don't 
know where he is at with that now, but I think it would be reasonable to put 
the CFA on hold pending that update.   There have been some good comments 
already, though; in particular, I think Juliusz' point that it would be nice to 
actually try some of this in practice is good, and is what I'm working on now.  
 I think having that done before the document is adopted is a pretty high bar, 
but I don't really care either way.

That said, what I said in the working group is that we've been spinning our 
wheels on this for several years, and I wanted to know if the scope of this is 
reasonable and is what the working group wants to take on.   If it's not, then 
I don't actually know how to proceed.

(BTW, Juliusz, yes, HNCP is where the domain name is agreed upon.)
