First of all, the code base has been impacted. We’ve written 3 years of code with UNS in mind when building network products. UNS was everywhere and had different meanings: a blockchain, a token and also a domain. We named variables, constants, functions and even comments with UNS references. All these lines are not refactored because it would have been an horrible, tedious and boring work. For this part, we chose to keep actual code and add a section in our open-source project’s READMEs to explain the meaning of old terms. We couldn’t imagine new contributors fighting against meanings then just give up in front of difficulty. New code will be written with new terms and old namings will progressively disappear (that’s codebase natural evolution).
