Sure.  For example, when I look at my Mode Line now, I see that the major more
is "Message[Notmuch]".  When I look at the names of the currently open buffers,
I see "FOO" and "{FOO}" and "[FOO] BAR" and "FOO(BAR)".  All this is "standard"
in Emacs.  I have yet to see a buffer, or anything else, named `FOO BAR[ BAZ ]'.

But misses the point, for I set out to fix the name itself.  I noticed the
documentation error only after the fact.

Every time I see "Org Src FOO BAR[ BAZ ]", it makes me think for a moment that I
must have misconfigured the mode line string or something.  And why?  Because it
looks "non-standard", like nothing else.
