I took up your final suggestion nearly a year ago, and there have been some who
took it up long before that.
There is consensus. The problem is that it's a consensus against the old name,
not for a new name. And it also involves a consensus that just about any new
name Mr. Starling comes up with (except anything that involves the word
"blacklist" - these are not images, files and media that are blacklisted, their
usage is merely being restricted) would be an improvement to MediaWiki.
I entered another supportive argument on the Talk page you cited, but believe
me, I harbor no illusions about any of this. And there are other
considerations that I will advance in my response to Bawolff.
