A group name is a sequence of name components, by convention written left-to-right from highest-level to lowest-level naming authority.   Name components are written separated by a delimiter character.

Character set:   Name components are limited to lowercase letters [groups:(a-z]), digits [groups:(0-9]), dash ("-"), and period (".") characters.

Delimiter:   The delimiter between components is underscore ("_").




4.  UW top-level stems

UW-IT (acting as institutional group naming authority) controls the top-level stem space.  Top-level stems can be created as needed, based on discussion with stakeholders and establishment of clear definition and requirements.  Like any stem, a top-level stem must have a well-defined naming authority to manage it.
