Actually there are a few differences if you look at it a little closer. First of all, all insns now have a basic block number, because we preserve the CFG. Second, try "-fdump-rtl-expand-details" and enjoy a per-statement RTL dump.
And the pass is called "expand". Why give the dump a name that is different from the name of the pass? All dumps have names that refer to the name of the pass that creates the dump.
So I'd prefer to keep the 'expand' name.
