A foolish consistency...

We also use 'hasOwnProperty' and 'forEach' and 'toLocaleString' in JS. Why not use those names? Because it's not the same operation. Neither is it the same thing as .length. An array is a sequential data structure, so it uses .length. A map and a set is not a sequential data structure, so it should not.
