Data Set Name Alias

Problem: Data set names aren't user friendly in hindsight

Example: Data set name = GreatData and I do a prep step and it defaults to "GreatData_prepared" which is fine, but later I decide this is the "final data set" that should be used by others and I'd like a more intuitive name.  I understand changing data set names is not recommended.

Solution: Can we have an alias name for data sets? Then I could create an alias for this data set called "User_Demographics" or "Final_GreatData" or "Dashboard_GreatData" etc.  Then allow for an alias name view in the flow?
