Silk Components should have standardized placeholder names

Right now when you are using silk components, there doesn't seem to be a consistent naming with the components.  So if you are deciding between a Panel and a Section, you have to move your content to the new placeholder each time because the names are different.  If the placeholders had the same name, it would automatically keep your content in the right place without having to select everything and move it.  (i.e. call PanelContent, SectionContent, etc, just Content, call PanelTitle, SectionTitle just Title)

An alternative would be to improve the Placeholder naming to that you could rename it in your application for consistency.

Hello Rebecca,

Thank you for the idea, the team is working on it and you can expect changes on placeholder naming for both Web and Mobile still in this quarter!

My regards

I noticed some of the system actions ListDuplicate, ListFilter have the same problem ... If the outputs are both something like "List" then you wouldn't have to update your code.
