PM> The way a bean's name is referred to in the CDI spec is somewhat disjointed.

PM> 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:

PM> * JSF managed beans name
PM> * @ManagedBean name
PM> * EJB bean names

PM> As a result, we now have a mix of "bean name", "bean EL name", and "name", which is ultimately just confusing.

PM> I would like to standardize on a single term, and I would propose
PM> "bean name".

This is the sort of work that has zero immediate economic value, but
much maintenance and quality value.  I'm all for harmonizing all the
usages to the term "bean name".
