I find "images" and "docs" quite clear as-is. I don't understand what a
"docs-image" might be. And "product" is totally subjective and easily
confused with a "release" build versus fastdebug etc.
Maybe because of things like "exploded-image" (which is what? what is
the unexploded image?) the use of "image" alone is less clear, but still
"product-image" doesn't seem right.
