Is Android's FLAG_NEW_TASK named rightly???

According to an Android's document,

FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK

Start the activity in a new task. If a task is already running for the activity you are now starting, that task is brought to the foreground with its last state restored and the activity receives the new intent in onNewIntent().
So, it seems FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW is
FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_WHEN_NOT_AVAILABLE_OTHERWISE_USE_EXISTING_ONE in truth. This name cast me a very long journey all the way around to return back to FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW and FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP combination....
