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.

Regards, etc...
