I see no reason at all to rename anything.

remeber the days when there was dBase3. and then dBase4 came allong.
technically better but never took off ?
To the day things are either dBase or dBase3 compatible.

A simmilar situation we have with Zope.
Like dBase,  Zope is a base technology. How its named is not (very) 
important. Nobody but techies will be interested. And they  quickly will
learn what the different bits in the tool-chest are used for. What ever
they are named.
