Thanks for the suggestion -- In fact, in response to similar
criticisms of the TAG's initial attempt in this area ([1], note this
has been languishing w/o updates for over two years, _mea culpa_)
we're trying to evolve that draft finding more in the direction you
suggest: the working title is "Dirk and Nadia design a naming
scheme".  A version should appear here in the next few weeks.
