What's in a name - "deep attenuation":
I'm going to make one more try on "deep attenuation". Here are my
reasons for trying:
1. I'd rather have one word than two.
2. "Attenuation" sounds a bit academic to me - no big deal, but a bit
off putting I think.
3. The term "deep" suggests to me that something is drilling down
into a structure - e.g. recursively. This is in effect what happens, but
not the way it happens.
I much prefer the "inheritance" term that was used at LLNL,
but of course that is no longer available.
What about "heritage"? This is one word and it seems to
me could serve as I think it would be unlikely to be confused
Not a big deal to me, but I thought it was worth one more try.
I'm vacationing in NYC with my daughter, so I'll only be on-line
