We voted to sponsor OGNL.  Martin is right that our policy is to
avoid the cutesy names, favoring descriptive names instead.  EL and
SCXML are two examples of spec-related Commons components whose
names - conveniently for users - describe what they are.  Unless
there really is a compelling need to change the name from OGNL, it
should stay as is.
