Hi Richard,

I must admit I disagree : we should use in the title enough words to 
explicit what it has inside, because some peoples will discover it alone 
and we won't be in all case besides them to explain what the title means 
- and we can't be sure to have an elevator with us to sing our pitch to 
them... ;-)

It opens the door to ideas like action verbs : AccessTestIt, AccTestit, 
TestAccess, TestAcc, AccCheckibility, CheckAccessibility, AccessEval,
