A Proposal for Proquints: Identifiers that are Readable, Spellable, and Pronounceable

Identifiers (IDs) are pervasive throughout our modern life. We suggest that these IDs would be easier to manage and remember if they were easily readable, spellable, and pronounceable. As a solution to this problem we propose using PRO-nouncable QUINT-uplets of alternating unambiguous consonants and vowels: proquints.
