The point is: these are the names of the applications inside
phabricator. That link is the reason they are what they are. We could
rename them, but that also adds confusion. The names are in other
places in the software, in the URLs, in the phabricator documentation
and the command line tools. We can't change all that, we are users of
this software with some tweaks, not writing it from scratch. And the
little byline below the name basically solves the problem for new
users browsing the website.
