so you say. it's not interesting for me to consider. its hype cycle has 
been extreme even by 21st century internet standards. all proposed uses 
must be suspected of being a solution in search of a problem, as is 
absolutely the case for namecoin and the other blockchain naming 
systems. the burden of proof to show why anyone ought to spend any time 
considering anything related to blockchain is on whomsoever asserts its 
utility. that burden has not been met, or even approached, for naming.

i expect that we are off-topic for unbound, as well.
