Apologies to my delay responding to the feedback about naming!

We anticipated there may be some concerns about the naming. The project
members also want to confront those concerns head-on so any issues related
to naming don't take away from the technical merit of the proposal. We're
open to coming up with a new name and renaming the proposed project if it's
prudent or required. To that end, I have a question about the order of
operations.

If we need to rename, we would ideally choose a new name, change the
project name at that time, and start our refactoring with that new name. Is
is acceptable for us to flag a name change as something we need to do as a
near-term (1st month) item in incubation (if accepted)? If a rename is
required I'd like to add it to our to-do roadmap but also not block our
proposal on a renaming. I ask so we can address this concern in the best
way possible.
