Hi, Marcin-

Olli answered most of your questions, but I had one more comment, inline...

The camelCase names were a fad.  It's much more author-friendly to 
simply use lowercase (easier to type, easier to remember), and that is 
what we suggest for all new events.  We also suggest using the shortest 
name that still conveys what the event is meant to do.
