BTW, I now note that no+body is more inline with the existing practice of
"Unknown+User”. I assumed that the parts of the “no+body” construction can
be found in isolation (resulting in a domain of “no” and a user name of
“body”), but perhaps this is not possible. Either way I am happy with
whatever you choose.
