But if that might cause any trouble (for example Extensions referencing to current names of .exe files) I would leave all as it is.

I agree. I am involved in the development of three extensions: odt2daisy, odt2braille and a third one that will be released in early 2011. odt2daisy and odt2braille (both available on SourceForge) currently work with LibreOffice and I would like to preserve compatibility.

With regard to the original question: are there any surveys or data that confirm that the names for Writer, Calc and Impress need to be improved? (I wouldn't be surprised if this were the case for Impress; I don't see a problem for the others.)

Best regards,
