[MEI-L] Do we have to call it "MEI Go!"?

I couldn't agree more. My understanding is that MEI Go is just a working title that came up during last year's hack day in Montreal, and has been used to avoid spending the whole day for naming issues (instead of talking about the scope of required functionality). Like you, I think that MEI Lite would be a more reasonable choice, not only because it mimics TEI Lite, which seems to follow comparable design principles and intentions. However, I guess this
discussion was tabled until we're getting closer to a version that actually deserves to be named. At the same time, it wouldn't hurt to have a good name in place before that ;-)

Just "Go" wouldn't be great -- it's way overused, and doesn't at all suggest that it's a stripped-down version -- and putting an exclamation point at the end of a name always looks to me like an attempt to create excitement about something that may be worthwhile but definitely _not_ exciting. What's wrong with "MEI Lite" or "MEI Basic"?
