I’m really not sure! Here’s the fifteen-year-old commit that added that comment and code:
Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be any additional context in this or nearby commits.
My only guess is that we wanted to support using a custom field as the primary way identify articles instead, and so name would be unnecessary. But I don’t really know.
Sorry I can’t help more.
