Subject: Editorial Suggestion: Formally Define the term "root map"

Had an interesting discussion with George Bina from SynchroSoft on the
general issue of how to talk about "the map that establishes the resolution
context for key references". He wants to have a standard-defined term he can
use in his product to refer to this map so that it's clear to users what
he's talking about.

We looked through the current 1.2 spec and determined that we use the term
"root map" consistently to mean the key-resolution-context-defining map but
we never actually define the term "root map" formally, although it is used
in the formal definition of the term "key resolution context".

I would like us to think about whether it makes sense, or is even possible,
to define "root map" in a coherent way.
