I'm not sure it's a good idea to use an obscure word, even if it is appropriate to the usage. It should be a word that the average user would recognise, and hopefully be able to intuit some sense of what it does.
How about "Parcel"?
Like "Packet" and "Message" it provides a sense of what it is doing. The metaphor extends to sending and receiving parcels, wrapping and unwrapping them, and so on.
On a more trivial note, the first three letters make it a prime candidate for a corny acronym:
PARrot Communication Event Layer PARrot Container for Event Lobbing PARrot Commissioner for Event Liaison
