That's for debugging only. That tag doesn't actually do 
anything, it just provides a way to determine which
define-tags correspond to what names in your script.

Don't confuse this with the name given with a PLACEOBJECT2:
A PLACEOBJECT2 defines the name of an *instance*, not of
a character.

If you're conscious about the size of SWFs generated by
swfc, you could remove the code that generates the 
NAMECHARACTER, however if you're actually trying to shrink 
the size as much as possible you're probably already using
a tool that compresses/simplifies SWFs, and all those 
tools will remove the NAMECHARACTER for you as well.
