   VVV (VISTA Variables in the Via Lactea) Write:<<VVV AANNN>>
<<VVV RR HHMMSS+DDMMSS>>
<<VVV G HHMMSS+DDMMSS>>
<<VVV JHHMMSS.ss+DDMMSS.s>> N: 1+3+176+200+3+206911150 Object:Poss. Cluster of * + Brown Dwarf + Nova + ?  (SIMBAD class: Unknown = Object of unknown nature) Note:The VISTA Variables in the Via Lactea (VVV) is an ESO Public survey carried out with the 4.2m VISTA telescope. VVV is mapping around 560 sq. degrees towards the Galactic Bulge and southern inner disk in five near IR bands (ZY JHKs), there is also a multiepoch campaign in the Ks band visiting nearly 100 times each pointing. See: http://vvvsurvey.org

We want to register several formats that would be used by the VVV survey:
CLNNN for clusters as used in Borissova et al. (2011A&A...532A.131B)
BDNNN for brown dwarfs
NVNNN for novae

We plan to use the AANNN format for not so numerous objects as the one mentioned above, but for more common objects like variable stars, galaxies etc would be more useful to give the coordinates directly i.e.
RR HHMMSS-DDMMSS for RR Lyr stars
G HHMMSS-DDMMSS for Galaxies

And for any kind of source in the survey (unclassified), it would be useful to have a designation just with coordinates:
