Hi Carl,

You raise a good point. People often forget that in most
protocol suites, it's not practical to change the name of
existing application objects, because the name IS the
identifier of the object (i.e., the Relative Distinguished
Name, in directory-speak).

It's true that the SA usually/often names printers and
other service providers, but it's done ONCE at installation
time and changing the names may require shutdown and
re-installation.

I'm with Carl Kugler on this one.

Cheers,
