This is a political/marketing distinction and not a technical one.

Oh no, not the KDE rebranding fiasco here too!
Almost everyone still calls "KDE Plasma" just "KDE", despite all the
insistence that "KDE" is not a particular piece of software (anymore), but a
community. Trying to do the same to the "Fedora" brand is going to flop
exactly the same way.
This is not new. In Mo's blog post about the history of the Fedora logo,
there are separate logos for "Fedora Project" and for "Fedora Core" —
OS deliverable. Merging Core and Extras into one thing was absolutely the
right thing to do for the project, but not having a unique name for the
resulting OS was a mistake and leads to this. Ah well.
I'm not going to go out of my way to crusade about this by tracking down
people who Say It Wrong On The Internet, but I think as a project we can at
least attempt to be internally consistent, and I think there are huge
benefits in making sure Fedora (the project) isn't tied to one particular
