Not very creative marketing naming.

Since they bothered with both naming this vulnerability and designing a logo for people to use in their security presentations, couldn't they have come up with a more creative and marketable name for this vulnerability to put on their CV?

Perhaps naming it by including something spooky like Vaultghost or a backronym like TROVE (TPM recovery of VPN ECDSA)? They both seem more natural sounding and far more marketable than "TPM-FAIL".
