                 Standardization of Host Call Letters
                 ------------------------------------

We agree with Peggy Karp (See RFC #226) that there would be some benefit in standardizing the symbolic host names used in TELNET programs. It should be recognized that there is a trade-off between brevity and mnemonicism. It is our feeling that a good set of host call letters can be developed using only four characters (see Jim White's in RFC #206.) Each host should suggest its own call letters. Upper and lower case letters should be used interchangeably. The following is our currently recommended list:
       Host Number    Name-4            Name-8
       -----------    ------            ------
             1          sex             sex-ucla
             65         ccn             ccn-ucla
