We must support both Humans and Tools. I would favor Humans. But both humans and tools will have problems when some orginzation decides its project name is Beta or nightly, etc
I think we should consider not allowing / in many of the parts.
For tools, I think the main objective should be coming up with a set of rules which enable them to unambigously locate an artifact given a set of inputs. I believe this is possible with the two proposals so far, at least for java artifacts.
