I don't see any good solution, they changed their name and
ownership too many times. I would actually revert back the
description here to "MIPS Technologies Inc" instead of trying
to keep track of what they currently call themselves.

Since we already have both the 'mips,' and 'mti,' vendow
names for the 14Kc, 14KEc and 24KEc parts, maybe we can
just go back to 'mips,' for all cores past the mti era
rather than trying to date and geolocate each of the
classic cores as one of 'mti', 'img', 'wavecomp', 'tallwood',
'mips' 'cipunited' etc.
