Having talked to various users about this at numerous occasions, I feel pretty strong about using device names
But Bojhan responded with:
Could you provide more background on how you presented the case, and what feedback you got... I like that you are performing user research, but its a little vague on the particulars - which is important for us to understand how users perceive this.
Note that the list is stored as a configuration file, so can be customized per site through a configuration UI, per distribution, by other modules in code, etc. The discussion here is about what we want core defaults to be.
TODO: Update this issue summary with other considerations that should be considered besides user preference as revealed through user research.
