The reason is backward compatibility for the acronym, so that newcomers
would check old issues and see "RTBC" and the new words would match it
same with the old words.

Personally, we break backward compatibility all the time in Drupal, and
saw what the heck, it is worth it. So why not do the same with issue status
and documentation too? Yeah, some inconvenience for sure, but better in
the long term.
