I'm horrible at coming up with names for things like this, but I thought 
you proposal was fine and since no one else gave any input, I would go 
with it. One last minute observation is that I can not think of any 
mapfile keywords the currently use "_" under bar chars in them, but I 
don't think that is a reason to not use them here.
