My release word is "all done." I doubt it really matters, as long as you're consistent.
I use the "stay" command only if I'm going to be walking away from my dog. Otherwise, I expect her to stay in position until I either release, or give another command. I only say it once. Some guy in my class says "stay" about every 10 seconds while we're doing sit and down stays. How's the dog supposed to learn to do it on his own?
I don't use the "wait" command, but as long as you're consistent, it probably doesn't matter.
