can confirm this.
right now only only strips of these types show their strip names: IMAGE, META, SCENE, MOVIE and COLOR.
there's a comment in the code to /* only use elements you can see - not */
I'm not sure yet of the reasoning behind that comment but no matter what I think it is reasonable to include strips of type TEXT, COLORMIX (and maybe MULTICAM as well) in the list for consistency.
fix/patch on the way...

patch here D2977: fix T53639
(note: still left out MULTICAM, would like to gather feedback first...)

MULTICAM is selecting one of multiple channels, if we want to support that then I think it should use the name of the strip in the selected channel.
