For the record, In my efforts (at the moment rather slow due to summer) to package OSM Scout Server to Fedora I plan to skip the libosmscout based backend, at least for the first packaging round.

I agree, while we got into an interesting situation by simple historic development, it's not really causing any actual issues AFAIK that would warrant a complicated rebranding exercise.
