Because do you even know how much of a chore it is to say "If you need
to contact me, my web site is <breath, brief supplication heavenward
for correct elocution> double-U double-U double-U dot mydomain dot
US".  (Outside for Stuart's sake.  (Inside here because the
parentheses enclose the entire sentence.))  Besides, these days our
Roman alphabet 'W's don't look like double 'U's, so while we're
agreeing on the advocation and dissemination of new and good
communication conventions, I hereby declare that 'W' shall no longer
be known as double-U.  The new pronunciation is now double-V.  So let
it be written.
