Mortal is not a reserved word but it's a pretty explicit qualifier for contracts subject to self-destruction.

The change from suicide/kill to selfdestruct/destroy is a good initiative, but mortal kind of lost its meaning. What would be a good replacement ? I can't find anything satisfying.

  • recyclable
  • destroyable
  • terminable
  • transient

I suggest if you use destroy then you should also use destroyable

    Thank you, good suggestions ! I like recyclable, destroyable is straightforward but less imaginative. I'll leave the question open for more suggestion for a while before accepting it, I feel like there are more options. Oct 28, 2016 at 9:51
  • recycle() was good if you consider that you got some Ether back, when calling it. But I think EIP150c eliminated the refund policy. Oct 28, 2016 at 9:58
