1 - Print parent addon name in missing zone data messages

What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?

Every patch that adds new zones, the forums see a flood of questions asking which mod is complaining about "LibMapData". Novice users might not recognize the name of the embedded library though, and searching for a folder with the same name never seems to occur to them. What if those missing map data alerts printed the name of the parent addon to identify which mod needs to be updated? You could cache the localized addon name like this in the addon's main chunk:

local ParentAddOnName = select( 2, GetAddOnInfo( ( ... ) ) );
