Do you use generic and consistent names on examples?

It is a good idea to create a dummy company to represent all clients on internal documentation, including a made-up name for the person behind that company. At SSW, anytime we need an example of dealing with clients, we use the made-up company called "Northwind" which is managed by the also made-up client "Mr. Bob Northwind", often referred to as just "Bob".
Most of documentation starts from a real world situation and we don't want to expose our real clients names.

We need to make sure our project with Northwind will be approved before summer.
Do you feel this rule needs an update?
