I highly support a new name for the M Language. For me there is one major reason. With a new name it would be much easier to google questions and/or information.
Google with M and keywords is often useless. Google with Power Query Formula Language and keywords is pretty long.
So it would be great to have a short and unique "identifier" for the language.

We’re pleased to announce that in the May release of Power BI Desktop you can now define incremental refresh policies for your models.
At present these only apply once the model is published to a Premium workspace in the Power BI service; we’ll be bringing it to all Pro users in the future.
You can read more about it in our blog here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-2018-feature-summary/#incrementalRefresh
We’re going to leave this idea open for now, so please give us your feedback while we’re in this preview phase!
I totally agree with that. Alphabetic order makes sense. But having a measure for the revenue and the margin which is within one "topic" could be handled much easier by themes or groups.
There was a simmilar idea here in the community. Where the same problem should be handled by pining measures as favorites on top of the bar.
I think that a combination of both features would be fantastic.
We’re actively working on adding IntelliSense support for M authoring in the Advanced Query Editor, Formula Bar and Custom Column dialog. Expect to see these capabilities in one of our next few monthly updates, hopefully before the end of 2016. : )
I totally agree with that idea. Today I had the problem that I calculated multiple values in ranges. From 0 - 50 and from 50 - 100 and from 100 - 200 and so on. It would have been easier just to copy and paste the measures and edit only the parameters.
