There are those of us who think that "YADIS" is only a temporary  
name... and can't think of a better one it has to be said ... (and,  
admittedly, those others who think it's the coolest name since yacc)

And those of us who think that this "j-meta" lookup is a much more  
general thing that just something relating to identity. (see Mart's  
comment on the Talk:Open_Issues page in the wiki)

Personally I'm fine with any character string that I can read ;-)

BTW, I'm not sure how to "officially" do HTTP header extensions ...  
X- is brittle, but the RFC that used numbers and URLs seems to not  
have gone anywhere... anybody have any insight what the current best  
practice is?
