I have often felt that the TNC came to be in part becaue of the constant
presence of two "Steve"s in the same room ...

Then again, to me "the guy with the white beard" is named "Patrick".

Understood that no disrespect is meant but as it turns out even the
identity of discernibles is confusing. 

Probably for complete disambiguation SRN and SP would be the best.... 

No, wait, "SP" is parsing software... in a case- (and in many other ways)
insensitive operating system at least ...
