Is it wordplay only, or is eradication a good word to consider?

I think of the DEA, Drug Enforcement Agency. There "enforcement" can mean maintaining a status quo in a way some might think best, but others might think cynical; whereas "eradication" might carry a larger and more universally appealing meaning.

Then, CDC, Center for Disease Control. Those who might consider weaponized biological agents would want control, avoidance of blowback, ability to pinpoint but then not worry about epidemiology implications outside of a targeted controlled intention.

Wouldn't you be more supportive of a Center for Disease Eradication? That word eradication seems to have a place at the table, if allowed it.
