Why do we use yaug.org as domain name?

In search for a short but still meaningful domain name we have discovered that the four letter domain yaug.org is still available. Like YAWL (Yet Another Workflow Language) is not the first workflow language, we are not the first ones to invent a user group. So we are just Yet Another User Group. (Wikpedia on "Yet another...") Add to that yaug.org is just a memorable, short name.
