Because if upstream renames we rename too and since 99% of apps (both
Linux and Windows ones) wouldn't care less about the filename there's no
real case for filename stability.

(and no renames do not happen often but they do happen).

The real solution, of course, is to fix the apps so they use the common
font stack. I'm pretty sure thei' i18n is broken if they use fixed font
filenames BTW.
