(Guessing: )I think this was invented with the update/switch scenario, where you have a BASE version specifying the BASE version before the update started. (The real BASE version (in wc-db) is already bumped to the theirs version at that point.)
In that case it makes sense to call it base (vs mine vs theirs) or maybe older, but svn_client_*merge* uses the libsvn_wc merge code in a different way.
