Yes :(

There's been some past discussion of this from a tool developer
perspective, e.g. and

The best individual tool authors can do is something like
"$ processed with XXX" or "XXX on $"
which in a long pipeline results in extremely long names with
tools sometimes prefixed and sometimes postfixed. :(

Of course, things get really complicated when a tool has multiple
input files - in some cases the tool author could regard one set of
files as primary and preserve their name/tag only,

Naming things is hard.
