I would assume another reason for the $pkgname part is to ensure no two
packages that can be mutually installed could ever have a filesystem
conflict on the license file (ensuring uniqueness by the fact no two
packages/AUR PKGBUILDs can have the same name).  In cases where you're
both providing AND conflicting the non-git version, however, this point
seems not to matter.
