Rendezvous works by having text string IDs. You need /some/ sort of ID
anyway - if not a text identifier, then what? Noone said all apps have
to use things based on the text identifier, you can enumerate all
available apps of course.
The namespace is actually a seperate problem from the service discovery
entirely, as it takes place in OSC - ie after the service has already
been discovered. Steve is doing/has done some work in this area already
I think, though I havn't played with it.

It's not the most difficult problem in the world, and the implementation
would be almost 100% different in liblo as opposed to a library anyway.
Why waste the time writing some library on top of liblo just to
immediately rewrite it anyway?
