While that is theoretically true, that is not the way things work out in practice — people still call TLS “SSL” because that was the name the technology was referred to before 1999 (1996, actually).  We will need to do marketing for the WG's output *before* it has an RFC number, and being able to call it SUIT in that marketing does help.
(A new data tracker page is relatively low effort compared to fixing up marketing material.)

(And no, we shouldn’t have a FUD WG producing the SUIT protocol, just as we shouldn’t have suits producing FUD :-)

(Says someone who is not innocent for calling a WG CoRE that then went on producing the CoAP protocol.)
