Well, Debian as a project has effectively standardized (by practice) on
the hyphenation that has been suggested all over the place in this
thread. Debian users will and should be able to expect a Debian-style
package naming.
Dismissing comments favoring this hyphenation - in unison - as
expressions of personal taste doesn't really reflect the fact that
consistency is a quality Debian users look for in packages.

If you provide the TeX live names in the long description, people will
be able to find stuff by the usual package search functions.
