FWIW, let me mention that i absolutely agree with you, for essentially
the same reasons as you, and also:

  - using a search engine to get help about something not working for
    'eglot' is much easier than any of the "discoverable" alternatives;

  - original names are part of the joy of programming, and developers
    working hard for free software do deserve some joy (exaggerating,
    should we rename emacs to "editor" and GNU to
    "free-operating-system-similar-to-unix"? :))

Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could
do only a little. -Edmund Burke, statesman and writer (1729-1797)
