This is the hard problem.  When xerces, xalan, etc. were chosen the
ground rules were that the names had to be be actual words or names, not
acronyms, and not be already in use for computer related things.
The names left were mostly weak at best.

Personally, XRI works for me, even though it's not a "name" by the
above rules.
