I think one module name for all of the Web platform would work fine
for programming languages joining to the Web platform only recently.
But for languages like Java, I guess it would be nice to have a rule
for obtaining module names.

I'm curious how directory name (cssom, workers, postmsg, etc.) is
assigned for each specification today. Can we use the same name as a
module name in most of the cases? It wouldn't work for cssom,
cssom-vew, though.
