yes, "design principle" works fine, for me.

Perhaps, but this looks like the sort of thing where consensus
will emerge without formal decision-making.

The question in my mind is whether we're going to start
collecting requirements, design principles and such into a document,
perhaps for publication on http://www.w3.org/TR/ .

I'd be happy for a few volunteers to step forward
by outlines...
or does somebody want to start a wiki topic?
Would you like it if I did that?

something near http://esw.w3.org/topic/RequirementsDocument
e.g. http://esw.w3.org/topic/CategoryHtmlDesignPrinciple 
with http://esw.w3.org/topic/DontBreakTheWeb in it,
or /topic/dont_break_the_Web ... sometimes some bashing
around the name is worthwhile.
