Well, you are suggesting to change its name. Suffixing it is a name
change and it has the potential to confuse users that are actually
looking for "Unsharp Mask" and expect to find a standard filter under
its usual name.

About the menu, that's a good point. IMO it would be useful to have a
"Sharpen" group in the "Filters->Enhance" menu, separated from the other
filters. Here all sharpen filters can register and having "Unsharp Mask"
in a group with "Sharpen" should be a good hint on what it actually
