The OpenAxiom project uses `OpenAxiom' as *its name* and that is what it
advertises in its version numbers, web pages, etc.

The Axiom project cannot dictate how other AXIOM derivatives must name
their files, just like the other AXIOM derivatives do not dictate how
Axiom should name its files. And no, that is no willful denial.  
And it would be unprofessional for any of AXIOM derivatives to dictate
to others how they should name their files.

OpenAxiom can be installed in a directory specified by the user at
configuration time -- and in fact algebra and derivaties are installed
in a directory named after OpenAxiom.  That Axiom does not offer
similar flexibility is, IMO, a bug in Axiom.  The changes are there in to pick up -- I made it available to every
AXIOM derivative to use.
