I agree completely, but it is not that easy.

The problem is that you can also define stacked targets (for example build
against new KDE3 for 10.0) or you can have multiple repos for one target
(additional xine packages for example).

So, yes, we should standarize this, but we need also to handle these special

I would suggest to have a verbale standard to use for example
"SUSE_Linux_10.1" for now for the simple targets.
