The reason that I don't like home or corp is that they are both bound
up in ICANN delegation issues.  Let's just pick something unrelated to
any of that, so that we can neatly avoid immediate problems of
co-ordination.

In any case, the label we pick is not an architecutral matter.  It's
the colour of the bikeshed.  Or maybe the colour of the paint used on
wood that is covered by a piece of trim on the bikeshed.

Best regards,
