Some proposed this, some agreed, others did not.
In the just reported bug #671120 I wrote regarding this neither package
should get the name part of the policy:

Ian's proposal was as far as I understood it when reading it basically
rolling a dice and I hope that I either misread it or that it was meant
as a joke.
If the node package needs to rename the binary it obviously needs a new
name ;) Hamish suggested axnode once, the patch lying in the BTS uses
ax25-node. Do you have any preference in case it is needed?
Thanks for caring about this thread.
