A proper name also avoids confusion, for example when people usually use
a three letter acronym like DNF for something else. Or as shown with the
Clojure feature it creates confusion, because Clojure is already
included in Fedora, but the feature is about including the full stack.
Same with DNF if it will become the default, then using "DNF" again as a
feature name would not work.

The approval by FESCo is afaics the first time a feature gets properly
announced. Therfore the title should be well chosen at that time already
to avoid confusion by renaming the feature afterwards.
