Commons has a policy of using descriptive names. Yes, there are a few
existing projects that don't fit this - ones that were grandfathered
in when the policy was introduced - but it would be better to start
incubation with a name that would meet Commons' criteria rather than
one that will need changing yet again on graduation.

A lot of people both within and outwith the ASF know the name OGNL, so
unless there's a pressing need, it would make sense to keep it.
