Sorry I failed to follow to this thread earlier, rolled off my radar. :/
(I need to find a better way of tracking followups to my posts...)

Well I don't like "emacsen" either...

My suggestion is just to go with emacs-* rather than emacs-common-*.
It is a pretty small change and already quite a number of older
elisp packages follow it.
I'm not convinced that emacs-common-foo is broken as a naming
IMHO it is too verbose and it makes it hard to read and find emacs packages.
Then again, I'm not an emacs user.
I think it would be better if emacs/xemacs users had more say in setting
the naming convention.
