Subtask of: U4-11279

Having a non-variant doctype and then changing it to a variant one (only one language set up).

The document still renders in the tree with a name - but there is no name set on the node and it also cannot be resaved/published until you manually type in a name (although you get the impression that it has a name already because that is displayed in the tree - and it had a name before it became variant).

Could it default to copy over/use the invariant name as default in this scenario?
