What would be the difference between "volume id" and "volume name" ?

I can do this for the man page. Do you know how to get .texi into
making a moderate indentation ?

I have no own opinion on that. So: Ok.

It is an euphemism for clicki-colorful desktops on any base OS.
(I used "playful" rather than "childish" in order to stay polite.)

Six years of evolution in small steps. :))
There are a few problems with generally using "id" or "ID".
But it should be ok to at least consistently using "ID" with
the various ID strings in the Primary Volume Descriptor.

(Do not expect me to clarify the meaning of -volset_id.
 It is absolutely obscure what a volume set shall be at all.)

for the impact of your proposals.

Have a nice day :)
