I can't even begin to respond to this. You have all of that in the IFS, where it belongs. Long object names are unnecessary for anything that is not directly manipulated by end users, which includes everything the QSYS library system.

If I need human readable names, I'll use either text or the IFS. Don't touch my QSYS libraries. I don't need long names, and in fact don't want them. Ever. Period.
