Okay, I think three and a half weeks is way beyond a reasonable time
period to expect any kind of reply.

Since no one seems to have any idea what to name this, but can only
offer "we don't like the vtu" term, it's difficult to see what would
actually be acceptable.  So, I propose that we go with the existing
naming.

If you only know what you don't want, but not what you want, and aren't
even willing to discuss it, it makes it very much impossible to
progress.
