Maybe, though array-value/hash-value/scalar-value don't sound as good as array-ref/hash-ref/scalar-ref -- but definitely better than ref-array/ref-hash/ref-scalar

    But ar, hr, and sr aren't any more recognizable than ra, rh, and rs (probably worse because, especially hr and sr, they are too recognizable as something else). I think aref, href, and sref would work fine. But if I want a prefix half that long, I'm going with av, hv, and sv. :)

      they are too recognizable as something else

      :) I don't have much in the way of cultural bias, but I am biased against calling a reference a value -- sure its a value, sure its common in perlapi/perlxs , but not in the perldata...
