I'm fairly happy with the way things are named in hAtom right now:
anyone familiar with weblogs and/or Atom will immediately recognize all
the elements. The one (so far) variance is rel="bookmark", which is
defined in HTML so that's cool.
I'm waiting for someone to express a stronger opinion or principle on
how elements should be named, preferably with a reference to a Wiki page
listing it. At this point, there's serious proposals to rename 75%+ of
the elements in hAtom, which means hAtom won't look very Atomish at all!
However, if there's a consensus, that's the way it goes.
