[cdi-dev] Sorting out the "bean name" mess

The way a bean's name is referred to in the CDI spec is somewhat disjointed.
I think this occurred because the CDI spec was written with the term "bean name", but it got changed due to concerns over confusion with:
* JSF managed beans name
* @ManagedBean name
* EJB bean names
As a result, we now have a mix of "bean name", "bean EL name", and "name", which is ultimately just confusing.
I would like to standardize on a single term, and I would propose "bean name".
