Spell Name Changes (Immolate = Corruption)

It is either bugged or Blizzard has internally changed the names of spells to support the new talent system. What I have found is that the internal name of the warlock spell "Immolate" is "Corruption".

I basically have a mini addon to call SetBinding to implement all of my key bindings. On live, the following works
Code:
/script SetBindingSpell("3", "Immolate")
This would bind Immolate to key 3. On MOP Beta, I have to do the following to bind Immolate to key 3
Code:
/script SetBindingSpell("3", "Corruption")
Another is to use Shadow Bolt to bind Incinerate. I'm finding this out by using the following function and passing in spell book ids.

Code:
function PrintName(inputIndex)

   local skillType, spellId = GetSpellBookItemInfo(inputIndex, BOOKTYPE_SPELL)

   if (spellId ~= nil) then

      DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(spellId)

   end

   local name, rank, icon = GetSpellInfo(spellId)

   if (icon ~= nil) then

      DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(icon)

   end

   if (name ~= nil) then

      DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(name)

   end

end
I haven't found a good programmatic way to this as
Code:
name = GetSpellInfo("Immolate")
returns Immolate and not Corruption.

Maybe not, they did do quite a bit of Warlock changes so I wouldn't be surprised if they renamed a few to make them make sense.

Even if they renamed anything, having two apis return different names for the same spell is a bug.

Ah I see, I misunderstood, thought they had changed the name of the spell as well.

This also happens with frost strike <-> blood strike and asphyxiate <-> strangulate for DKs
