[written before/while styloxxx popped in, above]

People have been thanking my above post today, for some reason, so I guess I'll now ask:
Is Juliette Roman not a satisfactory model name? It seems preferable to the current one-name alternatives: Esther, Nicola, Lola, & Trisha. If we wait a bit longer something else might come along & then we'd either:

a) have another instance of JR
b) have two different two-part contenders to tie-break
c) have another unsatisfactory singleton
d) rinse & repeat

This seems like another example of what I've tried to write about here & here... & probably elsewhere. It may seem otherwise but this is not meant as "having another go" at any of the current/past section mods. My discussion of this topic has always tried to focus only upon processes/thinking/how MIR operates.

To repeat: the alternative here is to accept a two-part mag. name, start a model thread, & hope that raised profile may prompt further discoveries. In that scenario we must remain open to the possibility that we don't always get it "perfect" first/every time so that thread may require a later renaming, should evidence for such turn up.

That is an iterative & incremental approach rather than the "big bang"/master-plan-up-front approach (software dev. & construction metaphors), which treats errors as/makes them prohibitively expensive.
