It is not decided that anything will change at all, and if it will,
the parameters of that change are very much up to debate. This survey
is an informal project I have initiated to collect some data for
further discussion.

It is worth considering, when it comes to majority decisions on such
matter, that a group can be its own worst enemy:

Our own view of these brands is clouded by our constant exposure to
them. Our neural networks have become, more or less, adapted to
navigate the jungle of brands and name 1anagrams.
Peace & Love,
