A composite name is a name that spans multiple naming systems. Each component is a name from the namespace of a single naming system. Composite name resolution is the process of resolving a name that spans multiple naming systems.
Components are separated by slashes (/) and ordered from left to right, according to XFN composite name syntax. For example, the composite name
has two components, a DNS name (sales.doc.com) and a UNIX path name (usr/local/bin).
