I was out.....  I like simple.  I still don't like basiceng, however I suppose simple mitigates my concerns a little.

It’s my intention to approve “simple” for generic use (with misgivings) as well as “basiceng” as a specific form. I am not convinced that “ogden” is better, nor that people will confuse “basiceng” with “simple” since Wikipedia or VOA or whomever will certainly use the latter, and “basiceng” reflects the name of the specific form in question better than “ogden” does. 

The forms for “basiceng” were submitted 29 October and it appears that there are no edits to be made. I will file the “simple” forms shortly.
