That is fantastic - I will definitely use this name at some point.

I always called that the "slow-boiling the frog" technique, but I suppose that includes a bit more context than the pattern does. The idea is that there isn't any appetite for refactor, let alone modernization, but there are new features desired and/or issues with existing features, so you do all of that work using the new technology, until you reach a tipping point where the effort to modernize/upgrade the legacy base is relatively small. This generally hinges on an increase in speed and/or reliability for the new stuff.
