What is the convention for topic name parameterization?

Is there a convention or "best practice" for making topic names configurable?

I can think of two obvious ways to do it, but would like to use the "standard".

  1. Name the topics statically and force people to remap as they see fit.

  2. Make the topic names ROS parameters

While the difference may seem trivial, developing consistent conventions eases and speeds development, and I'd like to go with the convention if there is one.
