So, the naming system contract:

1.  Requires the host to guarantee global uniqueness 
(which may fail but since when are bugs obsolete)

2. Is all names and a part of the name is NOT a locator 
but a means to determine a part (membership - iow, if 
it says where in the set, it is a locator).

3.  Might enable resolution but does not guarantee it.

I don't get that "stringing" part. Stringent?  An example may be clarifying.
