The Virtual Machine – why just Java?

I’ve mentioned it before and I think it’s worth repeating: Oracle should remove the name “Java” from the Java Virtual Machine. Popularity of other languages besides Java is growing and specifically growing on the JVM. This article points out some poll data showing Groovy, Scala and Clojure use on the JVM.

Seems to me it would be cool to a name like “Polyglot Virtual Machine”.
