I where not thinking on SL only, I where looking at something more
generic.

> sl-pop-router#-port[-speed].sprintlink.net

The speed thing is debatable, some people wants it, someone does not,
and someone are willing to pay me $50/mont to make DNS say OC3c on their
DS0.

SL-POP-ROUTER is kindof Sprint specific, others have other ideas on
how to name routers, how about this;

router-slot#-port#[-port#][-ts#-#][-dlci#].europa.net

Where "router" is something that is syntactically correct.

A cisco with a VIP in slot 0 and a hssi in PA-slot 1 with a HSSI port
in 0 would be;


	peter-bath-room-slot0-port1-port0.europa.net

Ts for timeslots on a chanalized card
Dlci for a flame-delay circiut

ATM?
X.25?
SMDS?

> But instead of h0/0, use h0-0; s2-6; etc...

Is this actually usefull, the NOC person will be guided to the right
box/slot/port and can use other tools to figure out the media type,
wich is in my opionion not very usefull to knew.

> i.e. icm-petersbathroom-2-s2-1-512.icp.net

Nope, my routers have another naming convention, bathroom is
for example, r29a..
