Thanks for the check, Bertrand.

True, the project is part of NetBeans Apache incubation, so it should not
be ashamed to share the NetBeans name. I can change that for next version,
unless following convinces you that it is not needed:

People usually associate NetBeans with the image of an IDE. Or (at most)
with the image of general desktop application platform. However HTML/Java
API is different - it is heavily portable API that works everywrhere - it
is almost like "Cordova for Java". The API is part of NetBeans as it allows
us to write parts of the IDE in HTML5. However to stress the general
purpose usefulness of the API I hesitated to highlight the relation with
NetBeans in previous pre-Apache releases. That is the reason while I was
avoiding mentions of NetBeans in the name of the API.
