As someone who can't follow a chart I thank you for writing out the line by line directions as well. So many times I wanted to knit a pattern only to find it in chart form and I am stuck unless I take the time out to go through the chart and re-write it which is VERY hard for me to do.
As far as cable names go just something simple and short works for me. If I have difficulty with a specific cable name and a pattern is short enough I may rename it myself to what makes sense for me.
If the instructions for each cable aren't too lengthy then you could also just have them written out directly into the pattern.
