I perfectly got your point - however the proposed solution does not
solve the problem in general but turns it just in a different direction.

I did not intended to make you silent. I have also an open issue which
- provided it would be agreement upon it - would simply make your point
void. As I explained when beeing in Travemünde we have some problem
with filling up the Bio task with a lot of packages which might deserve
a better categorisation. Suggestion Nr. 3 of  was about splitting
the Biomed part of from Debian Med and create a separate Blend which
enables better categorisation and when doing so you are free to find a
better name for it.
I tried later to come back to this issue but it was ignored (same
fate as your renaming request).
I'm a bit uncomfortable by splitting my own baby but I would not leave
alone one of its potential parts. There is just some work to do which
I personally can not do myself because of a lack of expertise how to
properly categorise biological packages properly.
