At the bottom of the WMS Dialog, there's a field that says "Layer name". Except it's not the layer-name that's shown here, it's the layer title.

I assume this is meant to be the qgis-layer-name as distinct from wms-specification-layer-name. Maybe some more clarity could be added that this represents the QGIS layer-name. I.e. "QGIS Layer Name":

Same for WFS and the "Use title for layer name" could say "Use Feature Title for QGIS Layer Name".
