Old news: I've decided that OSMIC should be the name of the
public-domain data-structure level we've been working on
(a public-domain version of the 88.1 Xanadu data structure level).
This includes transclusion and data-based links.
However, the next level up-- structure, documents, other topology--
is really a separate level and needs another name.
"Universal Structure Level" is basically the concept. However,
"USL" doesn't sound great. I am considering two other names
in particular: LUX and NUSL.
LUX (Level of Universal Structure) sounds nice-- Light and Luxury,
deluxe, Luxor-- but not many people know that "X" xtands for
NUSL is therefore my favorite. If so, where the "N" is to have
come from has to be decided. Possibilities include
Natural (sounds very Ecological, Environmental-Safe).
Suggestions welcome across this whole problem.
