But the only meaning of the word Gimp that I know is a slang term for a submissive in a BDSM context.

To put it in San Franciscan: They're kink-shaming and erasing the identity of those that participate in a BDSM lifestyle by changing the name to this, so I suggest the "Digital Object Manipulation and Mastering Experience", or DOMME. It gets rid of any ableist baggage and allows those involved in BDSM to proudly identify with the project.....

Yes yes, I'll see myself out. Mine's the one with the riding crop in the pocket.
