No, I'm just trying to wrap-up the discussion... ;)

While having "WCAG" in the title has benefits, it also has substantial 
drawbacks:
  - Do we say "WCAG 2.0", "WCAG 2", or just "WCAG"?
  - How do we version the Methodology, do we say "Website Accessibility 
Evaluation Methodology for WCAG 2.0 1.0"?

Same as above.

In the following I'm not sure if you are suggesting alternate titles or 
shortnames or both but we can re-discuss.
