Here's a list of possible names to kick off a brainstorming session, mostly derived using words that we've discussed around this concept: fabric, interfaces, scalable, framework, etc.  I haven't tried googling these myself yet.

Fabric Interfaces (what the libfabric 'fi' prefix stands for)
Fabric Interfaces Framework
Scalable Interfaces
Open Fabric Interfaces
Open Fabric Framework
Scalable Fabric Framework
Fabric Framework
Scalable Fabric Interfaces
Scalable Interface Framework
