namespace with all of AT&T labs, and picking a random machine here
doesn't really help.  com-att-research-eostrom admittedly seems

DNS scheme and the registration scheme--anyone can experiment by using
DNS and a unique id, but parties can contact a registrar to get a
piece of core namespace.  (maybe, only if they provide a published
