I vote in favour of the name change.


I think the steps to make this happen are :


a)       Agree the intention to make a name change (over an unspecified
duration of time)..which if this current thread has sufficient momentum
could conceivably happen?????

b)       Actually set out how it is to be managed, and yes, every indication
is that it is a very very large and difficult undertaking (for everyone)

c)       Do it.


Personally, I think if the new name takes 5 (or even more) years to 'settle
in' and become the norm, that will be a reasonable outcome.


Just my thoughts,
