The main idea is to give an object several aliases.
I would like to avoid having empty proxy-objects that fill the folder.
The object itself would know about its different names and a
presentation view could choose, e.g., the shortest one when used in a
list or as an html page title, and the others would be displayed below.

I am not sure if I quite understand what you want to do but... Creating custom views which changes the presentation would probably do the job, without need to create aliases. You can select the view you want by adding "/@@name_of_view" after the object in the url.

I don't think that would do it. The views would not provide two equivalent names for one object. And I actually do not want to have two different presentations, only two equivalent names.
From my first mail::

  'Equivalent' meaning you should be able to access it with
  scheme:host/path/name1 and scheme:host/path/name2 without any
  differences, and it should be in the catalog as only one object

A practical example: A text that describes a book.
I want to link to it as
 - http:/host/TheBookAboutLifeTheUniverseAndEverything
 - and http:/host/HinzKunzETAL2004
