Can we add a rule for F19 that the name shall not be an adjective-noun
form? Those sound too much like Ubuntu's naming scheme.

Spherical Cow is really an idiom, and arguably not a normal adjective-noun
pair.

Justify it all you want, it still sounds like "Copying Ubuntu" to me.

Such as "Beefy Miracle", perhaps?

IMO, such a rule would be deeply undemocratic. If the masses vote for
an adjective-noun form, they shall have their way. Power to the
people!

What masses? I heard about a vote to vote on elimination
of code names and spent three days trying to figure out
how to sign up to vote against all code names, and could
never do it. The masses don't appear to be eligible to
vote in fedora elections.
