Good Morning Andy,
We do label them distinctly:
 mRNASeq is labeled to clearly indicate that it is sequence-based
 mRNA is not
That these are processed differently and represent different data types (array-based, versus sew-based) is also described in our online documentation.  And that documentation page is visible directly from our top-level home page (as shown below).
Hope this helps,
