I would have been fine with it even if they did keep the old name. Band members get replaced, and just because it was the singer doesn't mean you have to re-title the whole band. It still sounds very "Queen" in the instrumental section, and even though Freddie may have been a great driving force of the band, he's still just one component. As far as the whole Death situation, it does seem a bit misleading to name it like that... but hey, as long as people realize it's not the same band and they're not releasing new material under that name, I don't have a problem with it.
