It is not speculation on what the naming convention might be. It is a suggestion for what the naming convention should be.
It was clear to me and I agree, and I recall I might also have suggested it myself along the way. Pi4BW for the 'with wireless' version, Pi4B if there is ever one which doesn't have wireless, makes a lot of sense.
Keeping to the existing A/B convention as "B" with multiple USB host connectors, "A" when a single USB host/OTG connector gives a potential range of 4A, 4AW, 4B and 4BW with rational naming. The "+" can be used if there is ever an improved SoC version before a Pi 5 arrives.
One could also argue for a H suffix as well to indicate the board has GPIO headers fitted; Pi4BWH as a parallel to Pi0WH.
