The concern about moving the discussion seems
unfounded to me. Is _anyone_ seriously proposing it?
This sort of extension was anticipated when we formed
the Group. Indeed, the first sentence of the Group’s
description states, "The 4D_Cubing Group is a Group
for people interested in higher dimensional analogues
of the Rubik’s Cube puzzle." The "4D" in the name was
just a quick way of indicating something beyond 3D.
You can’t hope to capture every aspect of a Group’s
raison d’etre in its short name. (Would anyone have
liked "nD_Cubing_where_n_is_greater_than_3"? :)
