It *was*. It was changed at Paul's request in this v3 thread:
https://www.redhat.com/archives/linux-audit/2018-July/msg00087.html

And listed in the examples and changelog to this v4 patchset:
https://www.redhat.com/archives/linux-audit/2018-July/msg00178.html

It is also listed in this userspace patchset update v4 (which should
also have had a changelog added to it, note to self...):
https://www.redhat.com/archives/linux-audit/2018-July/msg00189.html

I realize it is hard to keep up with all the detail changes in these
patchsets...

Exactly what I'm trying to avoid... Worded another way: "Don't mix up
the creation operation with routine reporting of the identifier in
events." Steve, can you and Paul discuss and agree on what they should
be called? I don't have a horse in this race, but I need to record the
result of that run. ;-)
