F2.5 Footprint naming conventions for specific components

Footprint naming is sufficiently complex that a general rule is not enough to fully define a naming scheme that fits the wide range of footprints.

In addition to the general footprint naming guidelines defined in KLC 2.1, a set of footprint naming guidelines for specific footprint types is provided in KLC F3.x.
