NAM — NotFound exception needs clarification

    Summary: Issue: NotFound exception needs clarification:

    Page 4-10: Section 4.3.2 Exceptions

    The subsection for "NotFound" describes the value of rest_of_name as:

    rest_of_name identifies the portion of the name that caused the

    And then goes on to describe for each value of "why" the first name
    component that rest_of_name must have.

    This requirement is insufficient. It must require that rest_of_name
    contains the remainder of the non-working name (just like that in
    CannotProceed). For example, if you supply a name such as
    "aa/aa/aa/aa" to any operation that raises NotFound, the current
    definition requires it to return "aa" as the first component but does
    not require that other components be set. In fact, Sun"s
    implementation (and probably others) currently just returns one
    component, which is useless.
