As I said, it is true that I can arbitrary hyphens, but there was a
decisison behind these names: Keeping the collections of TeX live (this
is what users see when they use the installer) and the debian packages
namewise in sync.

I have no problem introducing different names, but only if I see good
reasons other than "I like it" or "it is usual like this". To me, the
argument on name-sync collection-debiannames is strong enough to keep
the current names.

Best wishes
