I agree with this.
Its simple to remember, and follows what the list is already called.
People are used to it now.
Plus, it describes what we do accurately.
personally, I'm against the attempt to associate everything vaguely blindness related with guide dogs,
so I wouldn't support a lot of the other suggested names.
Call it what it is.
