Once we have done that we also plan to request changes to I-D and RFC boilerplate that use the wrong name, again, with no changes to the licenses themselves.

is there a timeline for this correction to happen?

I'm asking, because while for the Trust this is a relatively straightforward update to some of their web pages, on the IETF side we need some tools work to implement this change (in addition to also needing to update a larger number of web sites and open source repositories.)
