Indeed that was my position a couple of months ago. But I was swayed by the team's bullishness about ABI/API breaks before "1.0". I mentioned that was still only an ideal though...

More realistically I think we'll probably end up keeping MirSurface as is, because that nomenclature has permeated too far beyond a single codebase already. That just makes finding a better name for MirRenderSurface a bit more difficult.

Agree. I think it needs to be done before 1.0, and would be nice to do
before making the header public.

Are we really intending to rework all the code "out there" that refers
to MirSurface?!

I agree the name is wrong, but I think the time to change it has passed[*].
