[bv-dev] Name for path nodes representing return values

another issue where we need some feedback is BVAL-368, which is about the
name of path nodes representing return values.

As per the current draft, Node#getName() returns null in that case.
Question is, whether we should return something more meaningful, and if so,
which value.

The RI used to return "$retval" before we change this to match the spec.
Another obvious option would be "returnValue". Having a standardized node
name for return value nodes would also help with better toString()
implementations for j.v.Path (although that's not standardized).

Any thoughts?
