I think the simpler the better is a good approach. The goal of
Trinidad is not to address only JSF experts. Since JSF tries to
simplify the "Java Web development" our components should have also
simple names, however.

removing "object" from "objectImage" (for instance) is definitly a good thing.
Since some components perform layout, a "Layout" should be added!
What to me was totally confusing is the "selectInputDate".

+1 on having these guys named "inputDate". In a component palett I was
always looking for inputDate and then I figured out, that guy is
called selectInputDate.

what does the "LOV" by inputLOV mean?

The proposed names sounds reasonable.
"breadCrumbs" is interesting.

I guess Martin, Thomas and Ernst will like their "Brösel".

   Or that guy who invented the comic Werner :)
