If I understood Sergio correctly, he suggests
"ensure" without any suffix, since a short name
sketching the semantics is better than a long
name explaining the sematics in detail. I agree
with this point of view.

Thus, I vote for "ensure".

By the way, we are about to contribute another
proof of the well-known thesis that syntax
discussions last at least double as long as
semantic discussions :-) .
