But that's the point: first of all there's Beagle/Bagle/Alu, not to
mention the variants that *do* exist. Type I and II diabetes (and yes,
my wife too) mean the same thing to any doctor -- whereas different
folks have different variant names for the same thing. It would be
more akin to some doctors reversing Type I and Type II or even adding
Type III or IV without any standardization with anyone else.

That said, it's clear that the answers for antivirus/malware and
medicine cannot be the same due to the speed of response needed, as
you and others point out. Some type of standardization would be great
but it can't slow down response times.
