could someone please clarify these points regarding the invalidated nicknames:

* to be clear, 2017-07-15 was only a few days ago so this means that more than 
99% of ALL ring nicknames are invalid and most every ring user must register a 
new nickname

* are peers who have the now invalid nickname on their contacts list still able 
to contact the user with that deleted nickname by using the reference on their 
contact list? - i ask this because IIRC these references can not be deleted - 
or is it the case that anyone having the deleted nickname as a contact must 
re-add the new nickname (even if it is identical to the deleted one)

* if it is the case that your username (e.g. 'fred42') was among the affected 
then will the new system allow re-registering that identical nickname (e.g. 
'fred42') ? or is it not possible for i nor anyone else to be 'fred42' now ?
