If we take the calling new things mediatek route, we will never get to
the bottom of fixing the naming inconsistency.

All new things, so new SoCs, should be called mediatek, because there is
no ralink and mediatek is already used for them. So why some new
Mediatek SoCs are "mediatek" but some other also new SoCs are "ralink"?

You can do nothing (and no actual need) about existing inconsistency...

I couldn't change ralink -> mediatek because company acquisitions don't
grant the change. I don't see any reason to prevent changing mediatek ->
ralink without breaking the ABI on the existing schemas.

You cannot change mediatek->ralink without breaking the ABI for the same

Then this is where I ask for an exception.

The current solution only complicates things more.
