Are we just having fun here?
Or might we actually start using a new naming convention for the-syntax-formerly-known-as-generator-expressions?

You only get a list/dict/set from the first three after you've run the iterators within it, but with a generator expression, you already have a generator before you've run it. That makes it feel different to me.
