It's a historical accident.

A long long time ago, the plan was to call "Neo1973" both GTA01 and
GTA02. The GTA01 was thought of as the "developer" version while the
GTA02 was thought of as the "general public" version.

If you fail to see the beauty of giving two quite different products
the same name, trust me that you're not alone ;-) When Steve joined
us, one of the first things he did was to axe this, and give GTA02
its own name.

Alas, development had already proceeded pretty far back then, and,
since GTA01 and GTA02 were both supposed to be called "Neo1973", this
was used as the common name all over the place.

I'm not sure we want to do anything about the sysfs names, but we
should clean up any kernel-internal uses of "Neo1073" in preparation
for the Great Upstream Merge. Holger already did quite a bit of this
janitorial work a while ago, so I hope that the remaining changes
won't be too messy.
