This name would not evoke much to me if I had never heard it. To be fair to MediaWiki, it’s not really a MediaWiki feature, it’s the name of a MediaWiki extension. The corresponding “Wikipedia feature” is called Pending changes, which evokes a lot more to me.

It should be no surprise that a software name (extension name) is less clear than a feature name. If our Flagged revisions is closer to the Pending changes system and doesn’t do more than helping with approval, I agree “Flagged revisions” is a suboptimal name, unless it was chosen because development making it more flexible was planned.
