Grit: I think the ability to guess domain names isn't an important one, informativeness of URLs is much more important. If musedoma do their job right, then one knows that sfmoma.museum is indeed what one is looking for.

The point I was making about persistence is that for a renewal policy to make sense it would have to apply to all/most domain names, which directly undermines the utility of a DNS.

shlomif: I'd say an important advantage of Java over C++ and (to a lesser extent) perl is that it is pretty predictable: there are relatively few nasty snafus in writing code. Maybe `less insights' is the price, but I can see why people might use it to get the job done.

The `It's not real code' argument against Perl is lame, but IMO Perl doesn't scale well; I have to say I don't think of Perl as a `proper' programming language.
