after a discussion on whether it can be useful to query properties by
name, i wondered about the authors' view on the following rephrasing
proposal of the LV2 specification for name
http://lv2plug.in/ns/lv2core/#name :

(additional text is enclosed like _new text_)

A display name for labeling in a user interface. Unlike lv2:symbol this is
unrestricted and may be translated. The lv2:name _is not necessarily
unique in the scope of the plugin definition and therefore_ MUST NOT be
used as a _unique_ identifier. This property is required for Ports, but
MUST NOT be used by the host for _unique_ port identification. The plugin
author may change the values of this property without changing the Plugin
