Comment (by jltallon):

 Yes, the documentation piece is needed anyway.

 Noted that sanitize_key is a bit too expensive. My "sanitize_objectname"
 could be made simpler.
 Moreover, I did not use sanitize_key (in fact, I replaced its usage for
 register_object_type) since it wraps names to lowercase, and I wanted it
 to be case-preserving.

 Call the function whatever you like, but (IMHO) we should allow
 [A-Za-z0-9_] (i.e. "identifier" as in most programming languages) for
 custom post types and custom taxonomies.
