I belive it *is* something of a tweek, albeit a good one, to recraft 
WordPress into a CMS tool.

As for the naming of links, I guess someone "up there" :) has to decide 
dictator wise,  what it should be.
This debate only repeating itself since long, so let me repeat the best 
suggestion in my opinion.
Links are links so let's call them just that.
Links have categories, so introduce one default category called "Blogroll".
The rational for this wouldn't be all that hard to explain to new 

Just my, you know ..
