Well, if one was looking for logic in that direction, I think it’d only be called “part15” in the US. The name might make little sense to someone from another country where a different document and part would relate to whatever rules they can transmit under legally without a license.
But it has to be called something and be someplace, I never assumed that meant that people from other countries were unwelcome or discouraged here. Nor have I seen any sign of that.
I think that the concern being voiced is that ads for 15 watt fm boosters (to pick one example) combined with threads about pirate radio could make this site/forum seem at a first glance to be endorsing or encouraging activities which are illegal in the US under part 15. I don’t personally think anyone would have that impression if they actually read many of the forum topics/threads, but first impressions can be lasting ones.
