Our main thesis in this note is that if spacetime noncommutativity is at all relevant in the quantum gravitational regime, there might be a canonical approach to pinning down its form. We start by emphasizing the distinction between an intrinsically noncommuting 'manifold', i.e., one with noncommuting coordinate functions, on the one hand, and particles with noncommuting position operators, on the other. Focusing on the latter case, which, we feel, more adequately reflects the experimental… Expand
