I don't think we should make decisions base on those cases, these are
exceptions. But even if it happens the name in the header is the least
problematic thing. When a project is renamed, apart from the massive
refactor in the code other things have to change, packaging, service
files, etc... For the headers you could have both, one with the old
name and one with the new name for a while to give people time to
migrate and then remove the old name. Just like deprecating other
stuff, e.g a configuration option.
