Yes, that is a more technically-accurate name. Mike Gerwitz goes into this issue at more length here:

Gerwitz M. GNU/kWindows. 2016-04-06. 

where he calls it "GNU/kWindows", a name that is shorter and easier to remember. I suppose another possibility might be "GNU/WSL", though this relies on people knowing what "WSL" stands for. All these names are more accurate than "Windows Subsystem for GNU/Linux" would be.
