I recently recommended it, but in fact I would like it, if it would be called Rea"A"link ("Reaper Ableton Link") and not Rea"B"Link (suggesting that "Ableton Link" is THE Link).

As far as I understood, it allows linking without Ableton, so such a name change would be even more misleading...

I think name of company is Ableton, and open sourced protocol for linking their DAW software Live is called Link. So I guess 'proper' name would indeed be Ableton Link, like Google Chrome. I left ReaLink, ReaALink and ReaAlink names untouched, so they would be available, if more robust protocols or implementations using ReaBlink API emerge. I also thought about using ReaBuLink.

I already suggested what I think is most clear and easy to do do, even keeping the Rea prefix .

Simply write the name as ReAbLink -> Reaper to Ableton Link.

Maybe, but re-labeling project at this point would probably cause more confusion than clarify things. And I think ReaBlink has nice DIY and 'unofficial' tone to it, so people wouldn't easily take it as any kind of REAPERs 'official' Ableton Link thingy.
