We can certainly get rid of ".org" if we choose.

My understanding is that "Apache OpenOffice" is a unique name, and
will not interfere with holders of the "OpenOffice" trademark. We
would just need to be *very* strict about ensuring that the "Apache"
remains in all references.

We can also produce deliverables as ", brought to you by
the Apache Software Foundation" or somesuch.

Lots of options.

(but back to topic: probably doesn't matter much on our tag/branch names :-)
