All right - how about this.
This issue has been raised before and there were many people who expressed that the plethora of repo names is getting beyond the pale. Therefore, why not hold a survey and a competition for people to come up with preferred names for repos?

i really don't care what the repos are called, as long as the names don't keep changing all the time. once i understand what is what, i don't have to think about it anymore. and i guess that's what most others think, too, and therefore people aren't eager to change names around because one or the other group of people don't like them: there's many who got used to them.

a link to an explanation has been posted to this thread repeatedly, and i suggest you read that and get used to it -- instead of trying to force everybody else to get used to some new naming scheme that you prefer. actually, i never looked at that explanation, since i managed to figure out what's what quite some time ago. if that page isn't clear enough for you, i'd be happy to explain things to you off-line.

It is rather amazing that a small distro like Ubuntu can function perfectly with just a small handful of repo names which do not contain the likes of Playground, Factory, and so on.

ubuntu a small distro? well, i never knew. ubuntu also isn't known for the multitude of choices it offers it's users, so that's probably the reason for it getting away with less reasons. as i mentioned earlier: to have many choices means one has to learn many things.
