As I already said, this is not practicable as we need to care for all
languages. AFAIK, we don't have infrastructure for forked translatable

Do you plan to do that via mail (gimp-developer(a)lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU)
or via IRC (#gimp @ GIMPNet)? If the latter, it would be nice if you
could ping me (my nick is "nils") as I may have something to add about
the technical aspects (.desktop files etc.).
I was wrong.
Developers want this so that "GNU Image Manipulation Program" name
gets more know. I argued that that is killing their already
established "GIMP" brand name but that is it. They also said that
Fedora could always patch it if that is what Fedora Project decides...
My personal opinions still stands but at lease we know what is the
upstream opinion regarding naming.
