2017-11-29 Namespace Discussion notes


 at 12:30 PST



See Agenda

Discussion items

  • Need to determine what's a valid name at compile time
  • We know that quoted processes are valid names
  • URLs are valid names, but I shouldn't be able listen on
    https://www.google.com and expect to intercept messages meant for
  •  We need to have some kind of a registry to determine what formats of
    names are valid (e.g. do we want names that *aren't* URLs or quoted
    processes? Can we encode site-specific constraints about URLs?) and a
    way to denote policies around sending & receiving on those names.
