+0 I don't think I'd ever protest a rebranding from Plone CMS to Plone
ECMS, but I probably wouldn't like it because:

   - "Enterprise" annoys me as a marketing term, though not quite as
   severely as "solution". In the following phrase: "Enterprise Solutions",
   the term  "solutions" annoys me more than "enterprise" :-)
   - The term CMS is a bit dated these days. Just glancing at Sharepoint,
   they call their product "Collaboration software for the enterprise". I'd be
   happy just ripping that off.
