If we're talking about his comment on the member's list, I don't 
understand why it's binding.  I respect it, agree with it, and 
certainly want to change the name too, but I don't understand why any 
post by a member can do that when there was no vote being taken.

For example, could I veto the name 'XMLBean' by just posting to the 
members list?  I don't think so.
