One aspect of publication by W3C is the assignment of a permanent URL to
the document and its future versions.   For example:

        http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-syntax
        
        http://www.w3.org/TR/cooluris
        
        http://www.w3.org/TR/gov-data
        
        http://www.w3.org/TR/void
        
        http://www.w3.org/TR/swbp-vocab-pub
        
The selection of that last part, the "shortname", is technically up to
the W3C staff/management, but ideally it's something the WG is happy
with, too.

In our last telecon I agreed to suggest names for our documents. 

For some of them, the current names on the editor's draft filenames are
fine, I think: data-cube, data-cube-ucr, dcat, dcat-ucr.

For "org" and "people", I'm inclined to go with vocab-org and
vocab-people.   I think http://www.w3.org/TR/people suggests a somewhat
larger scope than this document has.  

For bp, I don't have any great ideas.   ldpb, linked-data-pb,
ld-best-practices, gld-best-practices, ld-pb, ld-pub, ... these would
all be acceptable, I think, but none are great.     The one aspect of
this that's not a coin flip, I think, is whether to put the word
"government" and the letter "g" in the title.   I lean slightly against
it, because I think it would scare away some people who would find the
document useful, but that's just my relatively uninformed opinion.

If I had to pick right now, I'd go with "publishing-linked-data", which
is a pretty long "short" name, but it's clear, at least.
 
So, those are my suggestions; I'm happy to discuss them more.
