Good point.

Throwing everything over board and start from scratch should not be done
under the label of OpenPGP; there are already a couple of other projects
working on re-doing everything from scratch.

What do people think? I certainly wouldn't stand in the way of a group that wanted to do that.

But OpenPGP is more than an RFC - it's a shared vision, community, and a history.

We've learnt a lot since 1992. If, in the act of tapping that learning, we tell the experience to go away and think up another name, I fear that's not productive, not efficient.
