Probably stating the obvious but - it sounds like the re-naming discussion should be high on our priority list. It obviously does not have a massive impact on the technology in the long run, but the pushback to such changes will only grow with time.

Witness the discussion back in May about changing noteOn and noteOff to start and stop, and Chris' worry about all the code already using the "old" names.
