Yes, some people tend to overthink :)

In my experience, institutions are all different. Some will refuse to
use GIMP, some will rename desktop icon or even patch out the
"offensive" name through out GUI, and many others will use it as-is.

It can, it has been, and it will be.

None whatsoever.

Personally, I have no particularly bad feelings (as if they mattered)
about renaming the app, but I've spent probably a week reading threads
on this "GIMP is a horrible name" topic by now, with maybe a hundred
new name suggestions, and I've yet to see one, just one sensible name
replacement that wouldn't look like IT people trying to be funny.
