But what would be full name of standard then? MultilingualWeb -
Internationalization Tag Set?

Personally I prefer name of standard that makes sense itself over name
that blindly forces us to use MultilingualWeb or MLW in the name.

Taking forward ITS is one form of this, where the work conducting in terms of ITS 1.0 drove forward the formation of the WG and subsequent development of "ITS 2.0". However I think the fact that the WG has adopted the brand of MLW provides a really good chance to future proof a naming convention. So my view is MLW-LT as a name of the standard is perfect as it allows for future MLW-** standards and builds on the concept of the multilingual web.
