The problem we caused by using alias in disk instead of name is break of search-by-name
in engine.search dialect, not sure why we do not want forcing disk name to be unique ,
but lack of "name" in disk search is does not look good in my view.
 can be easily achieved via appropriate can-do-action verification.

"name" is an automatic identifier of the disk, which is: "Disk n",
n=internal drive mapping; "alias" is a *user-defined*
IIRC, once we understood that we need a user-defined identifier for the disk business
entity, we indeed had in mind re-using "name", however, the "name"
field in other
business entities is unique across the system, and we didn't want
the disk user-defined identifier to be unique, so we preferred to not (re)use the term
"name" and came up
with "alias", to avoid confusion.
