given that at least the current prefix for the Org hierarchy is
suboptimal, I would like to propose renaming both the User and
Org hierarchy to Prs and Vnd, respectively.
The rationale behind those names is that they are the ones the
IETF/IANA chose for very much the same purpose: to name two
registration trees (for MIME types, in this case), Prs and Vnd
denoting the "Personal or Vanity" and "Vendor" tree,
respectively. See "RFC 2048 - MIME Registration Procedures",
sections 2.1.2 and 2.1.3, for a detailed description of the two
Does this look like an improvement over User and Org (or
Contrib, for that matter)?
