Re: Could we all say "Atompub"?
After a brief flirtation with "APP", I've gotten firmly behind "AtomPub" for "Atom Publishing Protocol". I tend to use "Atom" only to refer to "Atom Syndication Format"; it feels consistent with current popular usage.

FWIW I'm committed to using AtomPub when I talk about it from a blogging perspective. And in the upcoming MarsEdit with generic AtomPub support, it is designated in the popup menu as "Other AtomPub Compatible".
One great benefit of using the unique AtomPub when referencing this stuff, especially to naive audiences, is that it is really easy to google and discover definitive explanations.

The Atom Publishing Protocol [RFC5023] is getting pretty good traction, and it would be helpful to both the protocol and the community around it if we all agreed to start using the same name for it. People are using just "Atom", and "APP", and "Atom pub/sub", and I think each of those has its problems. I'm starting to like the single world "Atompub" which doesn't collide with any Intel CPUs or syndication formats.
If others wanted to designate some other name I'd be happy to help converge on that, too.
I think if the community reading this list agreed to start doing this (for example, at OSCON later this month) it would be a good thing for everyone.
