Well, it is actually SCSI commands that are being sent. Not some abstraction around a different command set.
That is because the *device manufacturers* are using SCSI commands.
So it would just be stupid to make up a new name, and pretend that the SCSI commands are something else.
SCSI means two things : a) A set of somewhat related controller / cable / plug standards b) a set of commands for storage ( and a few other ) devices.
b) can be used without a), but a) is very rarely used without b).
It has gone this long without a name split. I don't see why it should be changed now.
