A false equivalence between what and what?

My point here is that we don't normally rename things because they
work better than they used to.  Whether that is called PR value or not
confusing users, we don't normally do it.

We sometimes rename things because they do something *different* than
what they used to do.  But not just because they work better.

Anyway, it seems that no one other than you and I is very excited
about renaming this for whatever reason, so maybe we should leave it
at that.
