True, there is nothing stopping anyone doing this, but if everyone does
this unofficially the result will be confusion. This is something which
should be done officially by the UTC, by defining an official set of
correct names, in addition to the existing unchangeable set of garbage.
(OK, not every name is garbage, but a set of names some of which are
garbage cannot be relied on and so is best treated as all garbage.)
