As for me, Xr sounds pretty good.
I hardly expect any strong Windows followers to migrate to Linux or, *BSD, 
because  wonderful Xr extension to X, or whatever.
And, most Linux/*NIX users already familiar with X - so calling extension Xr 
is very smart way, IMO.


P.S. sorry with delay, was travelling too much during last 2 months.
