"NetidNetID"-style names

This plan specifies group names that are in the style of UW NetIDs, email addresses, and web URLs.  That is, they are:  relatively short; typically meaningful to humans but not full English words; and normally writable as ASCII strings without white space.  Such identifiers are intended to fit in easily where these other identifiers typically are found.  Note, however, that the names in this plan are not themselves UW NetIDs, email addresses, or URLs/URIs; there are mappings to/from those forms in some cases.
