Oh yes, this is the typical kind of bad naming choice that tends to
happen when indivdual vendors just go ahead and implement something
because it seems like a good idea rather then getting the design peer
reviewed first. Google and rel="nofollow" is another example (not only
does it not describe a relationship at all, but it means "DO Follow,
but don't consider this link to be an endorsement of the resource").
