I think they're distinct and we can leave them both in.
The id should be a unique identifier and not necessarily anything to do
with the protocol, name could be repeated and now does have something to
do with at least one protocol.
Otherwise I think I'd prefer name as an attribute on index, to go along
with name on recordSyntax and elementSet.
