BTW, when we initially discussed the kmod standard there was also (IIRC)

Yep. I'm still very strongly against overloading %{NAME}. We don't
permit any other package to do this for any reason, and I don't want to
start now. Name is not for versioning.

The name is used for versioning in several other packages for similar reasons (to *sanely* allow more than one version of the package simultaneously installed and updated), for example:

[pmatilai cs181077098 ~]$ repoquery 'openssl*'
openssl-perl-0:0.9.8a-5.2.i386
openssl097a-0:0.9.7a-4.2.1.i386
openssl-0:0.9.8a-5.2.i686
openssl-devel-0:0.9.8a-5.2.i386
openssl-0:0.9.8a-5.2.i386
[pmatilai cs181077098 ~]$ repoquery 'libpng*'
libpng-devel-2:1.2.8-2.2.1.i386
libpng10-0:1.0.18-3.2.1.i386
libpng-2:1.2.8-2.2.1.i386
libpng10-devel-0:1.0.18-3.2.1.i386
