Please tell me if I misunderstand, but I think that clearly identifies the
problem I've been trying to address: naming clashes on a scare resource.  If
what I think you said is correct, that would require someone to use one or
the other, but not both. That approach to web architecture is clearly not
acceptable, don't you agree?
