I agree in general.

How about rename the command as collect-occur instead of
collect-string and document it as next?

`M-x collect-occur'
     Prompt for a regexp, and collect the matching string into a
     collection buffer.  A numeric argument N specifies to extract the
     Nth recorded matched substring.

Does this address your concern in simpler fashion?

I followed your logic as you insist associating this command to occur
which is defined in replace.el.
