The issue is deeper than you think.  If you examined hits in
more detail you will note that most references falls into
two categories:

- historical or obsolete material
- names which part of user/external interface

Obsolete material eventually will be deleted.  User interfaces
may change but this is slow process to minimize negative
impact on the users.  I am not in the business of rewriting
history so I will still call NAG product Axiom and not FriCAS.
As long as Aldor is in use 'axiomxl' and similar names in the
Aldor interface will stay.
