While these are certainly accurate names for the method, Ernest's goal was 
to come up with a name that catchy and that instantly gives some idea of 
the method to a layman.  "Instant Matchup Voting" does this job pretty well

For comparison, note that IRVists have been successful plugging IRV, as 
oppose to "Hare-STV".
