Many thanks for the overwhelming support for the proposal currently 
called LDOM in the strawpoll today. I am fully aware that this has no 
official status whatsoever, so what I am writing below should be seen 
with forward references into a possible future only. Those who consider 
this premature should feel free to ignore this topic for now.

I believe we should try to agree on a suitable name for this new 
technology as soon as possible. If we delay this decision, then 
references within the mailing list, documents, and other communication 
channels will refer to vague temporary names only, and we risk broken 
references. Furthermore, it would be great to have a prefix for the 
examples and implementations, so that we don't have to redo them all later.

In this spirit, I have started a wiki page

https://www.w3.org/2014/data-shapes/wiki/Technology_Name

that tries to help with this process. Please add other suggestions that 
you favor, and feel free to add your comment and votes to existing 
entries. Maybe we can have a similar straw poll in the next weekly call.

Thanks
Holger
