No...  we're going to mandate OID-style router names
for the world's Internet providers:  

  <isoc-tree>.<internet-infrastructure branch>.
  <iso country code>.<city ordinal>.<provider #>.
  <facility #>.<rack #>.<shelf #>.<router ordinal>

Great fun to watch (it could be happening this way
in the alternate universe next door.)
