In that case, let's call what we're currently working on "The YADIS
Capability Discovery Protocol", so that later on we can also release
"The YADIS Sign-on Protocol" and "The YADIS Profile Exchange Protocol"
without confusing everyone.

In a nutshell, YADIS becomes the name of us — the group that's producing
the specs — rather than the name of the specification itself.

Substitute something else for "YADIS" when we finally figure out what
we're going to call this thing.
