Hi all,

See https://github.com/zeromq/libzmq/issues/805

The "identity" concept has always been confusing and misnamed. This is
especially visible when we do authentication. What this concept
actually does is define a routing name. I'm not sure what a better
name than "identity" would be, but would like to discuss this.
