There's no question that what you suggest is the better, more elegant,
more "correct" approach. But what's happening in the real world is
that list managers are using the software name as the address, and
folks are writing books announcing it, and users are learning what
commands to use for each software, and others are writing front ends
that know what commands to use for each software, and for a few folks
to try to change it at this time is just, forgive the expression,
pissing into the wind.
