In my copy of the standard, 653P1-3 dated November 15, 2010, there is
the following statement just under " Buffer Services":

"A buffer must be created during the partition initialization phase
before it can be used. A name is
given at buffer creation, this name is local to the partition and is not
an attribute of the partition
configuration table. "

I believe the part "not an attribute of the partition configuration
table" implies that names are not static.

The same phrase appeas in parts of the standard related to other
_intra_partition communication services.
Names of the _inter_partition services' objects, however, are static

Actually, I test POK without Ocarina or other codegeneration tools.
Moreover, I happen to have a suite of pure-ARINC-653 tests that I
"ported" to POK. I'm not sure about the terms that I got the tests on,
but I'll certainly share the tests if I'll be able to.
