This is your definition.  From a legal standpoint you may be right.  But I must
say that it complicates thing enormously if I have to replace "axiom" with
"axiom, open-axiom, fricas" in every bug report.

Please propose such a name.  I cannot.  For me, the meta name is Axiom, and
there happens to be a sub-project bearing the same name.  But that's my
personal and biased view of things.
