The NHC's intentions on storm naming protocol were released when we had Adrian in the EPac back in May (seems like so long ago, eh?) -- if the storm maintains classifiable status, they will keep the name. If a storm in either basin is no longer classified but something (re)develops in the other basin, it will get a new name. They aren't particularly concerned with the differences in names because a) most people don't care about EPac storms other than hurricane followers and b) they don't get worked up about the "sex change" in terms of names; in fact, they always say that people should refrain from giving these storms a personality because of the name.
Anyway, I don't believe it is quite the same low level center firing up over the EPacific waters as was associated with Stan. Last night saw a major convective burst fire up near Acapulco and move WNW; today saw another one. The center slowed down as it approached the coast and remained just east of the convective bursts...for development to occur, either it will have to move out over water or give way to a new circulation. The latter looks more likely than the former...in which case it definitely wouldn't be Stan (and in either case, it'd get a new name with Stan's declassification). In any case though, it's a very ambiguous circulation.
