If I may offer my opinion as a layperson/end-user... that name change
seems confusing and a "backwards-incompatible" change.
Documentation/instructions will need to be updated, Firejail profiles
and other scripts will need to be updated as well. Unless there's a
compat package or the binary/dbus names won't change (I'm not really
familiar with how this all works).

I agree it should be a blocker. I personally install my extensions from
the repos and they tend to lag behind a few weeks/months. It is not a
big issue, except when for example an extension update fixes a major
bug or crash, in which case it's more desirable to get it from the
website. Due to extensions typically breaking upon new GNOME releases,
the majority of users will want their extensions to be the latest
version possible unless it is an extension maintained by GNOME devs
