Hey, you named that thing to go to places. You even know names of parts of it. 
Don't you think that is asking a bit much of Joe User?
Really, you know that your car is a Ford (or whatever) and that your mp3 
portable is an iPod. I think it's reasonable to name things if you make sure to 
tell people what it does.
This has nothing to do with marketing, but with recognition.

Two points:
1) There are loads of competing products, the most serious contender (sp?) at 
this point being XMMS.
2) We name thins thing "music player", not "music player for gnome", which is a 
subtle but important difference.

And you skipped the most important thing: Why do we use the name "Rhythmbox" at 
all if there is no need for names?
