There was certainly no conflict between the various ryu whose name would be used, contrary to my previous understanding of this account.
Now this is interesting.

It seems clear that the account that all grappling schools were subsumed under the rubric of aikido is incorrect. Rather, aikibudo was important enough (Tojo Hideki, Prince Konoye, and innumerable generals, admirals and politicians were involved) that they had to have a place for it in the Butokukai. They changed the name to aikido to fit with the other sections (judo, kendo, etc) - rather than something significant to the larger budo world, it was a minor administrative entry of one martial art into their membership.
So in the end it comes down to: Ueshiba-ha Daito-ryu Aiki-jujutsu --->Aikid-budo(Aioi ryu)--->Aikido or is there something in between i am not aware about?
