Maybe. It was the best I came up with in a pinch; anybody come up with 
something better and I'll rename it.

Strongly disagree. I know I'm safe from a juristic POV, so that didn't 
influence my decision. But using the same class names as AddressBook.framework 
makes linking both frameworks into a single app (e.g. for migration purposes) 
completely impossible, which is a stated goal.
