I like the idea, but not where it leads to.  E.g. how would you handle 
foundry -> brocade -> {extreme,ruckus}?  Also brand identity tends to be 
owned by marketing departments, and I'm not sure that opening a registry 
up like this to the whims of a marketing department would do anyone's 
sanity any good. E.g. "JunOS", "JUNOS", "Junos OS", "junOS" - which one 
is it?  Or would it make any sense to refer to TimOS when that name was 
externally retired years ago, even if it's still visible internally?
