Fine Laurie but although I think even though some of us are writing as
though we need a "consolation process", excuse me but I think you meant "...
generally have a consultation process...." Governments are not overly noted
for consoling.

I think part of the problem is that there is no "public consultation" in the
naming process.  The official names are set in a closed process.  Even when
the options are limited governments generally have a consolation process
both to widen the range of perspectives and to increase the likelihood of
public acceptance of the outcome.  That way you can avoid clangers (like
Ground Butcherbird) that will never fly.
