I second the vote for collapse-length.

(I agree with you that minimum-length is not a bad name per se, but the meaning is different for spanners and extenders. For spanners, the description of the property and its functionality matched way better in the past, and users are more aware of that meaning. Now that extenders will be auto-generated, it's even more crucial than before that we avoid confusion.)

Nevertheless, I guess we are at a point where we get an evaluation of the syntax and behavior by some people that have not been as involved in the feature development as we've been. I have a blind spot for any decisions on syntax as soon as I internalized what the engraving result will be.
