That would explain it... 

I'm guessing this is so people can edit their theme instead of the
default so their changes don't get clobbered when they upgrade,
correct? If so then wouldn't a generic name like "Your theme" be good
enough for them to start with and then provide instructions for users
to the effect that they should edit that theme and not the default
plus givie it a more descriptive name etc etc?
