Passing link name to receiver link node to determine source

I have many nodes that go to a common link in node to get logged to a database.
All the link out nodes have names and i wanted this to show in the log.

i see that the link in node gets a property called "_event" with "node:NODEID" in it.

Right now i have to open my own flows.json and locate the node and extract the name from it manually.
I think it would be better if the link in node gets the name directly and put it in a property called "source_name"/"link_name" or something like that.

is that possible?

That would make sense. We can get the done for 3.0

Should this be an array in case multiple links are passed through?

Great!
Also another thing that would be helpful to me at least is another property called tag or something like that.

Usually when i use the link nodes i have a change or function node before it so that i can add some custom property's to the message.

Adding another property to the link node would make it possible to eliminate this.

i could then use the link node to add any extra info to the message. like "door_sensor" or "motion_sensor"

it would also make sense to be able to group by this in the link in node and not by witch tab it comes from
