Please read the naming layer API proposal before writing your proposal:


In particular, if you added a unique top-level domain (.bech?), you
would only have to specify how a the bech translation plugin works.
(It would be a much shorter proposal.)

It may be either kept in a separate string, or somehow affixed with a special delimiter either before or after the Bech32 representation of the onion.  Off-the-cuff, which of these looks best to you?

Transforming the final 2 components and leaving the rest intact seems
like the most usable form. Particularly if you're going  to add a .bech at
the end of the address for prop#279.
