I would vote for number one. Using a serial scheme, the last suffix could be omitted. Where a WDM scheme would require the suffix. I am also in favor of the 10GBASE, for marketing reasons.

Assuming that we go with 10GBASE- instead of 10kBASE-, which suffix
structure does everyone prefer:
1) <wavelength> <coding scheme> <# of wavelengths>, or
2) <wavelength> <# of wavelengths> <coding scheme>
An example of #1 would be: 10GBASE-SX for 850nm 64b/66b Serial, and
10GBASE-LW4 for 1310nm SONET compatible WDM.
An example of #2 would be: 10GBASE-SX for 850nm 64b/66b Serial, and
10GBASE-L4W for 1310nm SONET compatible WDM.
As a note, no matter which one we choose, we are still dealing with a large
list of port types.
