Why variicolor?

I wonder why the original names aren’t allowed to stay as they are?
Because some people in the mycology hierarchy are unable to let things alone, being obsessed with the idea that an epithet has to be proper latin..?? (if variicolor is)

Persoon’s original name: Agaricus variecolor! Fries’ recombination: Cortinarius variecolor!
