why don't we just call them all "loglans" since that's a generic term?


Uncontroversially to the LLG and the U.S. courts, perhaps; but for an incentive not to, I refer you to niction


I think it is useful to reserve loglan for members of the Loglan family.
A related term that is useful but unused is engelang or engilang for "engineered language", which is a little more general than loglang, "based on logical principles". Features like self-segregating morphology are not particularly logical, but typical of an engelang.
