Even better than that, perhaps some effort should be made to make all
the feedback a bit more generically named? If the point of this is to
inform users what's happening, telling them that "ESD" is starting
wouldn't be as useful as, say, "Preparing Sound" or something
similar. Basically this would do the same thing to all the strings in
the startup as was specified for the GNOME menus in the HIG - giving
everything a generic name instead of referring to specific "branding",
which means little to nothing to the user.
 Yes, this isn't such a fantastic example, but you catch my meaning.
