Default Should PDGA change MPO to MPD?

Now that the PDGA has instituted a Ratings Minimum For Open Division At PDGA Majors, Elite Series In 2020 should they also change the name from MPO to Men's Pro Division or something else since it is no longer a truly open division?

I don't care if they call it "Disc Golf Fun Time ". I know it's Open. You know what it is.
Imma be over here playing Am Masters and hoping I can NOT put a 995 and a 915 rated round together in the same tournament, as per my usual.

The "M" stands for Mixed.

Open means open to those who qualify. It doesn't mean anyone can play. Every sport has rules on who is eligible to play Open. It generally means only those who have proven their ability to compete.

US Open (PGA) is open to anyone...who qualifies.
To qualify you must have a 1.4 or better handicap.

I know this isn't PGA and we shouldn't try to imitate them but I did anyway.
