Non-descriptive names in GDAL/OGR tools

The GDAL tools (Advanced interface) mostly don't have descriptive names. Almost every other tool from other sources do - the GRASS ones in particular.
But the GDAL ones have "fillnodata" "proximity" "sieve" "pct2rgb", etc...
These will no doubt mean something to someone who knows GDAL, but to a non-user (i.e. me), they don't.

Of the wrong ones listed on the GDAL menu, the only one of them I can see on the raster menu (simplified interface) is "proximity". Which is wrong on both because it should have a capitalised P. ;-)
None of the other wrong ones (all of which start with a lower case character) are on the Raster list as best I can tell.
Or are you referring to a different raster menu?
