I'm the opposite myself. Mostly because some of the mistakes they make are rather odd and changing the name to be more accurate would change just about nothing. And secondly because in the real world their were plenty of cool weapons that served a multitude of functions that would make the weapon system far more interesting than the current loadout.
In my dream game, I want to see franciscan throwing axes that have a shield breaking ability, longswords you can half-hand with, aspis shields that give an AC bonus to those adjacent to you. It'd be awesome.
But I would settle for them calling an arming sword and arming sword instead of a longsword.
