The question of what to do with places that change over time is an important one as well.

I forked this thread to to continue the discussion of time changes.

Please keep this thread about ascending / descending, and contribute to the time discussion at the other thread.

Thanks, Earl. I was just about to do the same when I saw your post. Keeping these issues on separate threads will definitely help us reach closure so we can post some naming standard policies on the site. You da man!
