#589 each rule should have a unique name

Check (274)

There a several rules which contains sub rules like com.puppycrawl.tools.checkstyle.checks.javadoc.JavadocMethodCheck. This rules includes checks for method documentation and usage of @param tags for example. It is really hard to distinguish these sub rule violations in a report if all violations have the same name. The error description could be used to distinguish them, but then it is hard to group the results for a report.

So please give each rule and sub rule a unique to simplify automatic processing.

    It seems that check that produces several different warnings messages in different situations is intended to group them all together in automatic processing. If some check really checks several very different cases it should probably be split, but this should be done on the individual basis.
