Tips for naming SAP BW queries

I have been searching for a BW query naming convention. I understand this is very useful with security authorizations. Do you have any advice in this area?

Here are a few tips:

Include the application name in the query name to separate queries based on the application. For instance, for sales-related queries you may add the word "sales" in the query name and add sub-categories which will separate these further. Also if the query is being used in Web templates, it might be a good idea to add the word 'Web' to separate out Web queries.
