aliases, chosen, memory and reserved-memory are ones that are typically
on the top for convience sake, but looking around we have not been
terribly consistent there either.

about enforcing "standards" that are loosely defined (or undefined) and
will generally accept cleanups that are moving us towards consistency
and ease of rebasing.
