    Please provide more background to why you think the current behavior is unwanted. The current behavior was explicitly requested by other users, so if we should change this it must be done using a preference.
    Redefined operations should have consistent names. If you want to make it into a different operation (without affecting the base operation) the correct way is to first make it not redefined (easiest to do by pressing the Clear button in the Properties view) and then change its name.

    This behavior was explicitly requested by other users, so if we should change this it must be done using a preference. But it would be interesting to know why it's unwanted to update the name of the base operation. Redefined operations should have consistent names. If the user wants to make it into a different operation (without affecting the base operation) the correct way is to first make it not redefined (easiest to do by pressing the Clear button in the Properties view) and then change its name.
