Why not call the core "core" and the plugins "plugins"?

That just sounds like needless jargon to me.

The words "core" or "plugins" could be found hard to defend as brand names.

Why would you want to use brand names for the subcomponents of a project? That would be like calling kernel/drivers "Alchemy," or /usr/share/doc "Brontosaurus." Yes, they're much more trademarkable, but does that really help anything?
