I find the name "vim-tiny" makes it quite explicit what the package is;
however, I wouldn't bother avoiding conflicts with "vim" since I do not
see why somebody would want to have this stripped-down version installed
alongside the full-featured vim.

But that's only my opinion; since you do the work, you decide. :)
