If you didn't already, I suggest that you watch the keynote:

It should shed more light on the whole concept and background.

In practice not a lot changes for the name: in everyday use, it's still just "TYPO3".
In order to distinguish the CMS from the project though, we call the CMS "TYPO3 CMS".

"TYPO3 CMS" was introduced as a namespace for TYPO3 6.0 and in that regard
the core team at least knew it a lot before.

I know that big changes are difficult to embrace, especially if you personally were not
participating in the group working on the solution. But I suggest to let it sink in a bit,
try to see it a bit from a distance and then raise any questions you might have.

Speaking with dozens of people here after the keynote, the reactions were, without
exception, very positive.
