I' suggest to make it rather flexible: a dash should be ignored, so if
someone knows the exact name, it still matches. Would make it more
complicated to _require_ the absence of a dash.

For shortening names something like a lazy match would be nice: If the
sent prefix is enough to identify a single satellite, resolve the
request, otherwise answer with a message saying that the name ambiguous,
with possibly a list of matching satellite names. I would expect it to
work like tab completion in various Unix shells.
