Consistently speaking for any of the drivers (nodedev, nwfilter, secret,
interface, network, pool, volume, and domain) - I've been going with
@obj whenever possible, but I do see value in @poolobj, @nodedevobj,
@nwfilterobj, @secretobj, @interfaceobj, @networkobj, @vol[ume]obj, and
@domainobj.  But going through another round of changes to just change
the name isn't something I'd look forward to.

If you think back to my original series - everything was a @poolobj
because my object was a PoolObj.

Still to me an @obj within the specific driver/vir*obj.c source is the
same. When there's more than one type of @obj, then @obj would be for
the primary object while @XXXobj would be for the secondary object. Thus
for storage pools an obj is a poolobj. Using git grep or cscope to find
@obj and filtering further via the "src/storage" or "src/nodedevice",
etc. shouldn't be that difficult.  The caveat to all that is the storage
pools also have volume objs, which I think you point out in the follow
up I needed to be more consistent about.  The general way I had those
was @volobj.
