can you elaborate what the reason for this is ?

imho this feature (and its naming as well as its design) is one of the
most powerful UIs we have in ubuntu.

Add/Remove was initially designed to refer to the menu and intrestingly
my completely computer illiterate 75 year old mother instantly
understands that she can add and remove applications to/from her menu
with it, it reflects the menu in so many places that she really gets the
purpose ... 

i doubt she would have that thorough understanding from an opaque name
like "software library"
