Hello,

I agree with you that a solution has two components:

1. naming and discovery of the target cell phone
2. pairing (the proposed solution)

Should we deal with naming in this mailing list?
Naming should be based on DNS? I'm not sure how
human names (especially colliding ones) are represented
in infrastructure DNS.

I know that multicast DNS can handle collisions.
It allows scanning a target name. One can scan
all John Smiths in range (in a large WiMax cell, or
WiFi network), choose the John Smith he is looking
for, and get paired with John Smith's cell phone.

But a multicast-based solution would be limited
to local scope.

Any thoughts from list members?
