If this mirrors the behavior of Action (in the way variables are presented
to the fallback resource) then FallbackAction makes the most sense.

If it is restricted to a filespec at the same dir level, then perhaps
FallbackFilename makes the most sense.  (If it can be at the same level
or in another path, FallbackFile or FallbackResource might be better).

You make short, sweet and to the point choices.  E.g., ponies.
