My 0.02€: 

Formally, wrt. the FPC, there is nothing wrong with this name, ...

The upstream package name choice is very unfortunate and raises false
associations/confusion on the users' side.

It should be changed do something more descriptive.

If I were reviewing this package, I would not accept this package.
