it's named that way by upstream. I want to keep confusion to a minimum
and don't see much benefit in renaming it, esp. as it is called that
way in all the literature. No need to make Debian different only
because we can, imho. "Iceweasel" and friends cause sufficient
confusion already (although this is a different case).

That may well be. I'll look into this.
