Precisely my problem ... in 0p65 I had a shared Name/Address template.  Now 
I have only a shared Address template and I am obliged to handle the names

Sorry ... without the background in the project I caught that discussion 
and assumed it was related to using long names to achieve global uniqueness.

Yes, unique naming may inhibit a lot of sharing of common processes.

I didn't want to reopen any can of worms with my observations ... I just 
promised that I would forward to the group issues that caught my attention 
under my purview.

There isn't really a need to respond to these posts unless my incorrect 
assumptions might lead other readers astray ... thanks, Bill, for setting 
me straight.
