the point is simply that more stuff and functionality is depending on
this name. And if we consider to change it we have to collect all this
stuff first and should work on a reliable migration plan.

I see at the moment no pressure to work on this and we have much more
important things to do. But feel free to start and keep us informed. And
before we do any real changes on the name in the code please inform us
about your finding and the migration plan. It's important that we don't
break things and avoid confusion where possible.
