"StaffAxis" is as appropriate as it gets.  "MixedStaff", however, might
be more suggestive of the typical use case.  I'm a bit skeptical because
it is _not_ a Staff.  But then neither are ChoirStaff or GrandStaff.

Other ideas would be Squashed (we use that in Pitch_squash_engraver),
Collapsed, CollapsedStaff.  That brings the behavior of the axis into
the name again.

\new CollapsedStaff
   \new Staff ...
   \new Lyrics ...
   \new ChordNames ...

seems pretty descriptive, more so than MixedStaff.
