Lightbulb ROM topic release name standardization

Following the X1 ROM development subforum (and other ROM subforums) for a while I think it would be better to standardize the topic name for a ROM release to have a better reading on the topic.

My idea is the following:

{ROM's name} v{version} [features short][UC][language][firmware/based on] - other information (date as dd.mm.yyyy)

E.g. in my topic:

nX1i v1.00 [Lite][UC][UK/WWE][R2A] - released! (20.02.2009)

It would be a nice clean-up for xda.

What do you think about this?

Yes, the date of the update is the most important thing, I know, but I think it's the same for our eyes if it is in the first or in the last place, the topic order is always from the newest to the oldest. More important would be if everyone would use the same order in the topic names and the same formatting (as in the date). I know it's hard to accomplish for everyone to follow "rules" but...
