I've never liked the OID names, although I understand why they were chosen -- unambiguous, and to minimize "naming wars", but I really think it was so everyone would equally dislike the naming. :-) I'm all in favor of URL names, have used them for newly defined attributes when I have the choice. On the other hand, with so much existing config using the current OID names, it seems ripe for more confusion to have "yet another name" for our current crop of attributes.
