Menu Bar labels on submission screen

The menu bar labels on the submission screen are confusing. "New Submission" is used for an initial submission to start a proceeding (including an application), while "Existing Submission" is used for a follow-on submission in an existing proceeding. But a new follow-on submission is still a new submission so that can be confusing, while "existing submission" sounds like a saved submission to be edited or filed. Why not use "Initial Submission" and "Follow-on Submission"? Indeed, the title of the screen that comes up when pressing "Existing Submission" is "Follow-on Submission", so someone has already thought that that is an appropriate designation.
