I don't think I have too much of a problem with it but I can think of
a few consumers
who might want to mention if they're broken which are

- openstack-map / OSF website
- release team
- stackalytics(?)

I haven't dug into the history if we've ever done a similar rename,
but perhaps one
of our OpenStack historians can point to commits in the past where
we've done the
same and how it was dealt with in other places.
