Isn't it somewhat impossible to cater to everybody's impressions? Why
not go for descriptiveness, such as may be packed into a maximum of 8
"Official" is absolutely empty as a description, especially without
timestamp. Now, "academy" is slightly more descriptive, pointing to the
origin of entity.
Now, folks here dislike "academy" and want year-stamp, too. Fine.
And if future will bring "taraskievic" purges in Academy, well, then I'm
sure the future stuff of Registry will take care of namings. Why bother
with might-beens now?
