The more I think about it, the more I come to the conclusion that we 
should use descriptive names :)
The current Corona code is a collection of various modules that are 
developed in layers. I can use the lowest layer (the pipelines) without 
ever using the above layers (sitemap, controller etc.). So I end up with 
using a part of Corona. This part is (small) project on its own and imho 
calls for an own name.
If we think further ahead, we might come to the point where we base 
Cocoon 3.0 on Corona - and I think at this point, it's easier if we have 
descriptive names - as a Cocoon 3.0 is just the assembly of the separate 
parts with some additional sugar on top (ok, this might sound easier as 
it might be in the end, but anyway).

If you look at other projects, for instance Spring or Felix, they're 
doing it the same way: descriptive names.

Atm we have only a small set of modules in the Corona code, but perhaps 
this might crow and the more it crows, the more difficult it will be to 
tell people what Corona is.
