Given a chance to do catchy or not-catchy, I think it's an easy choice. 

Sure there are lots of un-catchy (and even some anti-catchy) phrases:
TCP-IP Address
MAC Address
http
ftp
url

... but if the opportunity arises, it would sure be nice to life
ourselves out the morasses that is these poor names, and pick something
better.  

Personally, I'm partial to SoapBox Address. I wouldn't be at all
surprised if Matt quite likes WildFire Address, or if Joe really loves
Jabber Id.

We could do our best to honor the memory of PGM, and call it the
Millard. "Hey, shoot me your Millard." I don't think it quite works, but
it sure is catchy.
