I agree that most of the useful arguments have been made.  Stripping 
away the arguments themselves, there are only 3 stances:

1) Shorter names are preferred;
2) More descriptive names are preferred;
3) Names matching existing conventions are preferred.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that #1 is the odd one out.  I 
don't care what the final name is, but it should match the latter 2 
principals.

p.s. Bonus points to the first person to match that pattern using Selectors.
