SCCM 2012: Why Microsoft does not call SCCM SCCM?

Several years (I believe with start of SCCM 2007) Microsoft corrected me with the acronym: “Do not call it SCCM – it should be ConfigMgr”. At that point of time they explained it this way: “SCOM does not sound good, so it will be OpsMgr, then SCCM will be ConfigMgr”. Hmm… I recently bumped into an article explaining it a bit differently, with more sense: http://support.enhansoft.com/Blogs/post/What-is-the-Official-Acronym-of-System-Center-2012-Configuration-Manager.aspx
According the article we had (officially) ConfigMgr for 2007 and nothing is blessed for SC Configuration Manager 2012. One of variants – CM12. I am voting for it, but still think most of my Clients will call it SCCM and may be confused with another acronym
