You may be right, in which case +names will fall on barren ground.  I 
had received the impression that the the first item on your list loomed 
quite a bit larger in the requirements space, if only because there are 
plausible workarounds for the other things.  But that impression could 
be wrong.  If nothing else, the +names proposal will help clarify the 
real requirements.  This is parallel to the situation in software 
development where, rather than ask users what their requirements are - 
you rarely get a useful answer - you build something and say "would this 
do it?" and often you get instant useful feedback. -Tim
