I love the VE, I use it all the time. I've written extremely complicated, long articles with it, including en:2channel, en:Bureau of Immigration Bicutan Detention Center, en:West Coast Customs, and so on. I hate switching to source editing. This might seem bizarre given I work as a computer programmer, but it is what it is. I would like to be able to give my references more descriptive names than :1, :0, et cetera, as sometimes I unfortunately need to switch to source editing and stick a ref in a template or something. Is this planned?

I should be able to name references
I believe that @IFried (WMF)'s team will be dealing with that before long. Put m:Community Tech/Allow references to be named in VisualEditor on your watchlist if you'd like to help with that.
