Interesting. We try be consistent in how we shortname our datasets on the IPT, which ends up in their URLs, and we use the same name for the GitHub repo/directory. Examples: alien-fishes-checklist, bird-tracking-occurrences. They might not be globally unique, but it could be useful to find them on GBIF using this shortname, but no problem if that is not possible.
