I understand the concern. So what are the alternatives to resolve this 

I propose that we do one of the following:

1. Keep the example as is

2. Replace Auto Co. names with Ford, GM, Chrylsler and BMW like it used 
to be in the earliest versions of the spec
and was changed due to concern regarding using real company names.

PS: It appears we are on track for posting the regrep-rim-3.0-draft-01 
and regrep-rs-3.0-draft-01 and accompanying files early in the week of 
January 3rd consistent with our latest plans.

Happy new year to all.
