I'll have to re-read what you wrote, I'm happy for feedback on what I wrote even if it's not the same thing
I'll write up my proposal on the AP issue tracker anyway when I get some time to breathe
@thelovebug I thought I did but I can look again, I'm currently swamped but added it to my todo list

Another, maybe overly nerdy way to put it is to look at Zooko's triangle and see that hashes of names are decentralized and globally unique, but not human meaningful. We need to bring back the human meaningful'ness mapping in two places: a place for devs to look it up (the git repo) and the keys for human readability on the document itself (brought by the context mapping)
- We have a git repository full of all the well known definitions
- Terms are stored in files like
- There are three directories for terms:
--- stable/: terms that have been around for a while, have significant community uptake and fair understanding in this domain
--- wip/: terms that are "in development" in the community. The community is still "converging" on the exact definition and
--- dustbin/: terms that didn't "make it"
Ok, so but how do people map from a hash to a term definition? Ie, how do people find and coordinate on the meaning of terms?
There are a couple of ways to do this; one might be that we actually hook it into a peer to peer CAS filesystem and there you go, you can get it. But that's too futuristic. There's a simpler route...
