Well, this is hard. There's no clear consensus, so ideally we would
continue discussion, but this is really a pretty small point, so I'll
force a decision: I'll keep the Upstream-Contact and Upstream-Name
fields in the spec.
This will either let us move on to other things, or provoke a wave of
opposition, giving me sufficient reason to remove them from the spec,
and letting us move on to other things.
