Dude, we already avoid names for stable releases, because they're widely
representative and very publically known. Quite a few people expressed the
concern that development releases had a similar representative force, so
applying the same rule to *all aggregate releases* doesn't seem out of place
or ridiculous.

Individual module maintainers can continue to do whatever they want, but the
big GNOME releases - be they developer oriented or stable - need not have
names at all.
