I'm not sure why Graphisoft hands off the "layer naming" responsibility to some intern to come up with their own (inexperience real life) inequities in determining what naming format to use for layers.
See how easy it is.......it's all alphabetical, separated by a "dash" (-) with a dicipline letter being the trade it is..........it's very easy to follow.

I, too, had the same question when looking to keep alignment with conventional layer naming over the past few years. I just thought the reference may help inform. For example, he indicates his experimentation with some of the conventions mentioned in the topic thread. It may explain why GS has not settled on a particular format or syntax, as there are so many options. While it may be expedient to install one ‘out of the box’, most everyone will still change them for their own business application/s.
Why does Graphisoft continually keep changing the layer naming conventions on their template files from "Walls Exterior" to "A-Wall-Exterior"????.
