Nope, just clarify the rules for *distinguishing* projects by name -- 
a much less ambitious goal, since it's pretty easy to do with little 
or no impact on existing projects.

A new naming convention isn't in scope, since it would require a 
"boil the ocean" renaming effort to implement, assuming you could get 
everyone to agree in the first place.
