I think it would be confusing to users if the names were not  
consistent. For the most part, everything else *is* consistent. To use  
the list reorderer, you call reorderList(); to use the inline edit,  
you call inlineEdit(); to use the image reorderer, you call lightbox()??

Regarding filenames, we do have the Fluid-all.js file (which avoids  
the need to know the indiviual file names), but the documentation does  
list the individual file requirements for those who wish to use them,  
and requiring LayoutCustomizer.js (for example) to use the Layout  
Reorderer would be odd.
