I suspect there's many systems which are configured presently to deal with
the callerid being presented as "asterisk", and changing it is likely to
cause a whole new round of "It wasn't broken; WTF did Digium change it?"

In other  words, do you think it's worse to have some negative first
impressions about Asterisk that are quickly corrected with a little
education, or is it worse for the Asterisk project to get negative press
from its own user community?
