If an opponent attacked a system and almost took it out then you change the names of all the systems, they may be unable to remember exactly which one they were fighting, position-wise. Seems like a dirty trick, to me. (AI wouldn't have that problem since they would be referring to an ID, most likely.)
I'm not seeing this as a problem. Its WAR. Spoils go to the victor. If someone sneaks in and takes a weak colony real fast and changes the name to F*ckYou or IPIssonu (I piss on you) then I can see it as a problem.
Knightdt is correct. Only YOU should see the name changes.
Think of it this way. If China took Hawaii and renamed it "Tiny China" and the Chinese started calling it that. Would Americans call it Tiny China or Hawaii?
