"Open Vulkan Scene Graph" doesn't avoid the Vulkan name is no better
than VukanSceneGraph at avoiding this possible overlap.

"Open Scene Graph: Vulkan" is misleading and has the Vulkan name in it
still.  It's mis-leading because it's not the OpenSceneGraph, it
doesn't build upon any of it's code base, it'll be a totally different
beast.  If we had two different backends for the OpenSceneGraph - an
OpenGL one and Vulkan one than you might want to differentiate like
this.  But again it's got the Vulkan name in it.

Unless you have a really helpful suggestion - like Chris' offer of
help of talking to Khronos, then there really isn't any point of
discussion, this week I have way to much actual helpful work to get on
with than wade though silly suggestions.
