This is very strange: 1.09 already contains \LaTeXe, so 1.10
added only a history comment.
However there are more differences in definitions of \BibTeX,
\SLiTeX and \AmSTeX, and in 1.10 \PiCTeX and \VorTeX were removed.

Anyway, I agree that 1.10 from CTAN should replace all those version
found in TL depot.
Now we have even more copies of texnames.sty in 
I don't know what was the reason moving sources here, since
doc/tldoc/ still contains ready made documents for some languages.
btw tldoc-* tpm files are corrupted. :(
