I’m not sure it would be a better name as it conflates the purpose of
the variable with an implementation detail. Any future changes to the
implementation would require more than “mechanical” changes to *.mk
files - we’d also have to find all other logical uses.

In this case it would be fairly easy, but still, the general trend
should be towards higher level abstractions once we’ve found the
underlying commonality.
