I can understand the concern of the lableing issue of the director when it is 
on the canvas -- however, if the director has a distinct icon (which I'm 
proposing) then that will serve the purpose of the user recognizing the 
director.  Additionally, the director is a bit bigger and a different color 
scheme, and normally located at top of the workflow and disconnected.  So 
there are many indicators that something is a director.  On top of that there 
are only a very small number of directors, and users will learn those 
identifiers such as SDF, CT etc.  

Removing unnecessary words is my professional recommendation.  However, if 
some feel strongly that they want to maintain the word director in the 
director label, then the idea of just using "SDF," "CT" labels in the tree but 
using "SDF Director," "CT Director" as labels for the directors on the canvas 
would be a good compromise.
