Chuck,
I have a question about "verifiable" in this context.

Verifiable is typically a criterion when you need to prove something that is 
historic.
Papers may exist, title deeds, etc.

In our case we are looking at:
- a string that may have no indication of use.
- a future event.
- possible detriment as a result of that speculated future.

On this basis "verifiable" may be a hurdle too far.

Image the case of a cultural community with a unique name.
For them there is but one name.
For the string propose who may think the name sounds fashionable, there are 
billions of
other possibilities.
How does the cultural community provide "verifiable" evidence ?
Are we to insist they pay a consultant $50,000 for a survey ?

"Verifiable" does not have the right feel to me in this context.
Comments from others?


Philip
