It seems to me like standard cultivar naming conventions, consistently applied would be more user friendly.
Blah, blah, blah
Definitely would be user friendly, but I don't see it happening. If all the different bamboo types had no names, and one could set about giving them names, then it would be great to organize the process first and then dole out the names. The problem is that 99.5 percent of them have names and to give them a different name would be confusing and met with resistance.
