I don't really agree or disagree whether the above and previous names
might have been better choices but is it really important enough to
merit changing it all now after users have already started writing code
to this set of names? (my Byteman agent for example).

This sounds to me a tad like asking for class BikeShedding to be renamed
to ModuleBikeShedding. Yes, if we are going to bike shed about module
nomenclature then we probably ought to do so as diligently and earnestly
as possible but ... really?
