I think that the same reasons for officially turning down the proposal to rename badges "achievements" will apply here. To quote Jeff Atwood's answer on that question:

As Oak's link shows, there are options for people to create customizations that individual users may choose to apply. I believe that would be a better avenue to approach than to alter the core system and experience for all users.
