CCDA to become CCNA:Design?

I just wonder if they're going to eventually rename the CCDA to CCNA:Design.

Look at the last example:

CCIP (Cisco Certified Internetwork Professional). It's now CCNP:Service Provider

Is there a reason why the Design track is the odd-ball of them all?
Maybe they're going to be overhauled sometime in the nearish future?
In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.

    Not sure but since they have been doing the re-branding of the exams, both CCDA and CCDP were updated from the 64x-873 to the 64x-874 version, also the CCDE is only a few years old at this point. Once would think they would have re-branded it CCIE: Design, but since they didn't it almost makes you think Cisco has other plans.

    I think Cisco is intentionally leaving the differentiation between the implementation tracks and the design track. Also, there used to be a CCIE Design, but that was a failed experiment and Cisco retired that cert. My bet is that the DA, DP, and DE are here to stay.
