All right. So it is the matter of using old name or the new name. But both
names lead to the same page. So the point of conflict here is what should
be the end name of this page. If you say that it is not about which name
do you want, then say why this name should not be the name I want?

I want canonical names for pages. Names that are consistent, which
capitalization is easy to remember and reproduce, and I want that people
linked to these names directly to avoid double redirects.
