I think the root cause is that the bundle's contents *are* arbitrary. 
Why is Konsole in the bundle but Yakuake isn't? Why is Kdenlive in, but 
Digikam isn't? JuK vs Elisa? Why isn't Discover in it?

No name will succeed in differentiating the contents because right now 
there's nothing to differentiate. To solve this problem, we'd need to 
either be more inclusive and try to get as many apps as possible into 
the bundle, or else clearly define what the bundle is and then be more 
exclusive, removing apps that don't fit that definition.

If neither of those approaches work, then probably the bundle will 
continue to be a semi-random collection of apps and no name is going to 
adequately describe the contents, so IMHO we might as well pick 
something that's best for the promo team to advertise it.

"KDE Apps Bundle" feels fine to me, FWIW.
