That was the recommendation of the EG. When I summarized that for Dan Smith he said ok - so I am assuming
that will show up in the next revision.

> Yes. While the attribute was MemberOfNest, we originally started referring to the "nest top" and that is the terminology I used in the VM implementation. But then it was suggested that it should be "nest host" and from that (eventually) came the renaming of the attribute. So I have changed all the uses (class names, variable names etc) from "nest top" to "nest host" in the VM code and tests.
