Going forward it might be worth while to standardize all wireless interface names, just to show at a glance that an interface is 802.11x, and also to differentiate the fact that eventually 802.11 will be its own network stack.
I definitely want to standardize on something like wlan%d. We should get that for free when a generic 802.11 stack is in place, which implies that there will be a common wireless helper as a peer to ether_setup() in the current tree.
