It didn't came from the GNOME team, but originally GTK1 themes were
named gtk-engines-foo, and GTK2 themes gtk2-engines-foo. Currently most
of them have been merged in the gtk2-engines package.

I'd say it is better to conform to this naming scheme unless there is a
good reason not to do so. It is just more clear for users.
