                Uniform information with a hybrid naming (hn) scheme 


       This document defines a hybrid naming scheme for unifying all kinds 
       of information including resources, services and data. With many 
       proposals of novel network architectures emerging, such as DONA, ICN,
       NDN, the location-based routing starts to transfer to the content-based
       ones. Currently, it is incompatible that many different information
       naming schemes are adopted in  different network proposals,
       respectively, i.e. flat names in DONA, hierarchical names in NDN. The 
       proposed naming scheme adopts a hybrid naming structure, which includes 
       hierarchical component, flat component and attribute component. The 
       hybrid naming (hn) scheme enables to identify different routing 
       information uniformly, and provides many great advantages, such as
       high aggregation, limited length, suffix holes remission, fuzzy
       matching support and good compatibility with IPv4/IPv6, DONA, CCN/NDN
       and so on.
