Of course :) The reasons are simple.

a) I couldn't figure out everything about the old elements (I was
especially confused why the tcpsrc element seems to support multiple
connections - what is it supposed to do if more than one client feeds it
data), and we're sort of bound by being in a stable release so we can't
just remove the elements (I thought for example you were still using
them), so I left them in.
b) Since I have created two sources and two sinks, based on whether
they're client or server, I don't think the old names were good for me
anyway.  So I used different names.  The names also make it more clear
which is server and which client, which clears up some of the confusion
that was present in the old elements.
