Pivotal issue: what is the new name for "OWL 2 DL"? (and to a lesser extent "OWL 2 Full") Does it keep that name? If we keep "DL", then the other names have a hard time being parallel names. If we change it, we no longer need the "2" for uniqueness, eg we can say:... the OWL 2 "Blue" profile, or just "OWL Blue"...

Moving on -- here are some possible naming schemes, of various flavors. With thanks and apologies to folks at dinner who helped brainstorm some of them.

Please don't read much into this, and certainly take no insult! (I only left out Manchester because it's too long! Honest! And it's got the syntax....)
