Why isn't it a "native" lens?

Lets say Acme makes a lens.

And Acme makes a camera.

Then acme makes an "adapter" so that their lens works flawlessly on their camera... Better than many other lenses work on other brand cameras.

Acme then says they fully support their lens on their camera.

Why not consider it to be a "native" or better come up with a term that means "as good as or better than native lenses"?

Do we just call it  a "manufacturer's lens"?

And finally,  aren't TC's a form of adapters?

Aren't then all lenses used with TCs really adapted lenses?

I think we need new terminology.   If a manufacturer makes a great lens that works on their camera flawlessly,  then either call it native or something imply it is just as good.
