I'm not really convinced that "URL" should be in the name at all. It's a
technical term, and as such has no place in a user-facing name.

Users seem comfortable with the term "address" — think "email address",
"web address" — so perhaps "YADIS Address" could be used. Though we
really should think of a better name than "YADIS".
