Well, as a user struggling with learning this stuff I find obtuse 
misnaming infuriatingly unnecessarily. Doing 'what it says in the tin' 
matters. Consistency in naming schemes matters. When one thing has 
camelCase and another a dash, 'viewBox' & 'stroke-dasharray', I think 
'why the hell couldn't these bozos get their act together?' I'm only 56, 
but lack of consideration wastes my remaining life having to memorize 
these things.
