Don't hold your commit because of me. I haven't the skills to review this
code. I just saw this mapping and asking myself about it. It can be be
modified later if needed in any case.

> In general in game settings you will see the name advertised.
> Some apps may even have other usages of the names.
> Besides advertising the Windows like names, we want add in the future
