I'll bite, even if I'm just a interested party. The + kind of looks ugly
to me. In your initial mail ("Patch for kernel variants/flavors") you wrote
Another solution would be to name the default kernel to have a
"default" like SUSE does, but this does not look nice.
I'd prefer something like that, as it's imho less ugly (or just as ugly)
than the plus and makes a lot of things easier. Agreeing on a name might
require a round of bike shedding if the Fedora developers want to go
down that route. "default", "generic" describe it well, but otoh
make people think it's just ordinary and "meh". My vote goes to
"generic" for now.
