This not a mistake, this is just a name. And a name doesn't have to
reflect all the things which are included inside it. Most people seems
to like the "Linux distribution" name, everybody understands that it
means the Linux kernel and many other things, and I see no reason to
change that name to something else that is not as easy to say just
because RPMS decides so.
