Renaming problem?

Query URLs could start containing IDs instead of names, if that would 
help. But I don't know why you want them expunged - they certainly 
aren't going away, because they are far too useful for users (bookmarks, 
emails etc.)

>>MISSING? And what's the difference between NOTWORTHIT and CAREFACTORZERO?

That's a bit specific; a lot of installations don't have a URL field at 
all. I'd question whether it needs to be part of the default set.

> NOTWORTHIT is for rejecting RFEs in non-OSS projects.  CAREFACTORZERO is
> more of a plain insult.

This is rather a fine distinction. Can't we find a non-insulting name 
which covers both for the default set?
