I agree that correct naming is very important.
In this case however, we can't let the perfect get in the way of the good.
This subsystem has a single user right now (me) and that can change
only if others can discover and understand it. And at this stage, simple
is best.

At this point we don't know yet where the API might possibly go.
It might evolve into something broader that includes IEC61158 as
just one aspect.

If and when we mature and get more users/stakeholders, we can then
look at changing to more specific naming. Definitely before coming out
of staging/.

Greg KH has accepted the v11 patch set, so at this stage we can make
changes only by circulating patches on the mailing list. Would you like
me to post patches for anybus-s documentation / making the
regulator optional? Or would you like to have a go at that yourself?
