Thanks John.  Same response moreorless from 
David M.  I understand that part.  The Oster 
system used dots for good reasons so there 
are existence proofs.  What may be the case 
here is that they use them for things that a 
namespace may be a better solution for in the 
long run, but some prefer six months of coding 
to two days of reading the documents. :-)

Thanks again.

The only argument I know of is that some people like to map GIs
into programming language identifiers, which often do not cope with
dots.  Same story with hyphens.
