XHTML 2.0 - <line> or <l>?

I finally got a chance to look over the latest Working Draft for XHTML 2.0 
and I was disappointed to see that the <line> element has been altered to 
read <l> instead.

Does anyone else think this is a bad idea?  On some text editors, it looks an 
awful lot like the old HTML italic tag which will doubtless cause confusion.

For the record, I'm in favor of removing <hr /> completely rather than using <
separator /> or some other alternative.  It strikes me that the <section> 
element renders it rather superfluous.
