I think this would be a really good fit. Use Steven's proven method of building inclusive, email driven neighborhood forums. Having even a few of these running would certainly help with advocacy around a commons-oriented naming system, and would be aligned with connecting.nyc's mission. I'm sure there will be some grant money spilling out from the sale of .nyc names, at least.
