Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but packages are copied straight from
their developers, who are also the ones putting the tarballs together.
They decide the name of the package (vim-6.1) and the name of the
directories to extract to (vim61). On the lfs site are just copies,
placed there for convenience, without tweaking.
So, yes, there's no reason to have these differences, but LFS is not the
right place to complain. We might change the names of the copied files
on the lfs site of course, but then people will wonder what the
difference is between package vim-6.1.tgz and vim61.tgz. Instead you
might ask the packagers politely not to introduce these inconsistencies
in future versions.
