Eponymy synonymy

With apologies to James Taranto, this from Science Blog caught my eye:

Doctors at Michigan State University have developed a revolutionary treatment plan that will allow primary care physicians to more effectively treat people who suffer from medically unexplained symptoms.
The diagnosis of medically unexplained symptoms is a problem that affects millions of people and can tax an already over-burdened health care system, according to Robert Smith, a physician and professor in MSU's Department of Medicine, College of Human Medicine.

Am I the only one who finds it humorous that Robert Smith has The Cure?
