Much as I would love to be the convenor of mrmd, I must concede that
Audubon Core has way more marketability.

Two issues then arise: 1. An acronym for use in name spaces and
communication; 2. the need(?) for a word to replace "core" in
describing the most important terms in the proposed standard, and
which are the ones we suggest are the minimal set that implementers of
consuming software should be prepared to handle gracefully. Audubon
Core Core sounds silly and confusing to me.

As to 1., I somewhat favor some form of adbn. Or if we must end it in
"c" and can't tolerate adbnc, then maybe adnc (resp. AdnC).

As to 2, I have no suggestion
