Sounds very interesting, elf. Lynn Foster also explained some of this to me awhile ago -- fascinating explorations!

I suggest using a name that is most recognizable by the community you want to attract. And also for communicating the concept(s) publicly.  For me, with no background, "economy" sounds more explicit than I/O for what I understand you are trying to get at. I/O to me implies computer system level actions.

Sandro, Harry, Wendy -- from a W3C point-of-view, would elf start a new group or can he re-name his old group?
