I happen to like the prefix, as I often use psql and it's tab trigger to
autocomplete table names.  Having the 'og' prefix makes things easier for me.
As you (if you don't do more low level db stuff) never really specify the
table name at all, they could be hashes instead of good sounding names.  ;)

That said, I just see no real benefit other than 'looks slightly better from
the outside' and vote against.
