The name does not need to differentiate the content. The name should be
a) unique enough so that searching for it would hit just its page
b) distinct enough from generic words like "Application", "Apps" and so 
on. The reason for that is to make sure that people don't confuse this 
bundle with "all the applications and libraries developed by KDE", which 
is a common source of confusion.

This has nothing to do with the content shipped with the bundle.
