Logstash branding/identity

I’m just curious if Elastic has discussed renaming Logstash since it isn’t just about logs and doesn’t actually stash them. I’m not sure if that was its original purpose, but I remember when I first started learning about the Elastic stack (when it was called ELK) that I kept thinking that Logstash was for stashing logs. I’ve seen others think that as well when I showed them the stack.
Shouldn’t the name imply “data processing” instead of log storage?
