Pavel, what I find is unhelpful is you requiring to conform to the new
rules that have not been accepted yet and for which there clearly are
objections. You keep ignoring all the issues that we continue to point
out with your proposed scheme.

I will go and try to reply to Jacek's thread, but it is my firm belief
that changing naming scheme is not what we need to do here.

No, because "platform" is not a device, it is something that you are
trying to assign a magic meaning to.
