Kehati's introduction to Moed Katan says that it is not called Moed so as not to cause confusion, as the seder has the same name. However, this doesn't seem to be a concern for masechet Taharot in seder Taharot.

Why not?

  • Does R Kehati cite an earlier source?

    I have a nagging feeling that טהרות has different Nikkud in the two cases.

    Please note that Tif'eres Yisra'el, in his introduction to N'zikin, says that the first 3 masechtos comprise a maschta called "N'zikin" and that each bava is a piece of that masechta, divided by content. At least some of this is based on Ramba"m's commentary.
