This is on terminology for the high-level language consisting of the 
built-ins such as sh:minCount and sh:property (current section 2-6 in 
"my" spec).

I believe there have been several proposals on how to call this, and we 
should pick a single term and use it consistently. Proposals that I have 
seen are

1) SHACL Core
2) the SHACL Core Profile (short: SHACL Core)
3) SHACL Lite

This may be a topic for yet another straw poll, but I wanted to 
enumerate all options before we do that. Are there any other options? My 
own order of preference would be 2 > 3 > 1, because there will be other 
profiles in the future (including sub-sets of Core). What I like about 
Lite is that it signals that this is just part of a larger "full" language.
