You are always free to call it the way you want and I perfectly understand the differences between the very first H1 and the next ones you may get.
I myself switched employers several times while on H1B, took advantage of the provisions you described and got a NEW H1 every time.
However, all what I wanted to explain is that legally speaking, there is nothing called transfer (did you read what Murthy said?).
Is there any USCIS application that says "H1 Transfer"? No.
That's all I meant.
Anyway, let's not fight over this!
