OK, not to distract the Working Group with a somewhat light-hearted
decision, but perhaps we should also come to consensus on what precisely
to call the language before we release the FPWD.

R2RML (Relational 2 RDF) sounds good to me. It's a solid, honest working
name that does what it says.

However, if we wish to continue the time-honored Semantic Web tradition of
having catchy names, we could call the language SQRL (squirrel), i.e. SQL
to RDF Language. A quick google search shows that this particular acronym
is not completly colonized by some other standard or product. The main
drawback of this name is that it may be too cute to be taken seriously.

Anyways, food for thought. I'm happy with either name, or *any* name for
that matter.
