Will the estimable Dave Kristofferson entertain a *weak* objection? It 
goes like this: "What's in a name?" Attempts to be absolutely consistent 
and logical when naming anything are doomed - the universe is too 
complicated for that.
So let's keep it simple. The newsgroup will be what the users make of it. 
The name bionet.celegans works just fine as it is.
