I like it. First of all "FOP" is well-known among the whole xml 
community for ages (what costs much) and secondly "fop" word has a 
meaning itself wrt eXtensible stylesheet language. The Webster says 
about "fop":

Entry Word: fop
Function: noun
Text: a man who is conspicuously fashionable or elegant in dress or 
appearance <felt contempt for the mincing overdressed fop>
Synonyms Beau Brummel, blood, buck, coxcomb, dandy, dude, exquisite, 
gallant, lounge lizard, macaroni, petit-maƮtre, popinjay
Related Word fashion plate, silk stocking; blade, cavalier, 
man-about-town, spark, sport, swell; ladies' man, lady-killer, masher
Idioms man of the world
