Hi

I would prefer that the term "Classic" is kept. 
L4S is not anymore an IETF only matter. Work is ongoing to get support for
L4S in 3GPP for 5G and the input papers there use the term classic. 
It is of course too late for changing classic to something else, but then it
is appreciated that It is something that the group can agree on and I don't
see that we are there, therefore it is better to stick to "classic".
And to me the term "classic" does not sound negative.
