Socci: Why did Benedict XVI purposefully choose "Pope Emeritus" instead of "Bishop Emeritus of Rome" & Claim this title "Corresponds to the Reality"?

Antonio Socci in his new book says that an authoritative canonist told Benedict XVI that his new title "ought" to be "bishop emeritus of Rome" since he would no longer be pope.

But, Benedict had it "announced" that his title would be "pope emeritus."

After the resignation, which later in the book Socci says is "at least... absolutely doubtful," Benedict's secretary Georg Ganswein said:

"He [Benedict] believes that this title corresponds to the reality."

Socci explains the "doubtful resignation" problem if Benedict thinks this "corresponds to the reality":

"The pope emeritus is logically still the pope, just as a bishop emeritus is still a bishop."
(The Secret of Benedict XVI,  Pages  64-73)

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Very, very interesting!!! “... an authoritative canonist told Benedict XVI that his new title "ought" to be "bishop emeritus of Rome" since he would no longer be pope.
But, Benedict had it "announced" that his title would be "pope emeritus."

It’s so puzzling, especially when we don’t hear from him regarding the changes or messes that Bergoglio is trying to make. Sadly, it seems that there are presently a lot more questions than answers.
emeritus (adj.)

c. 1600, from Latin emeritus "veteran soldier who has served his time," noun use of adjective meaning literally "that has finished work, past service," past participle of emerere "serve out, complete one's service," from assimilated form of ex "out" (see ex-) + merere "to serve, earn," from PIE root *(s)mer- (2) "to get a share of something." First used of retired professors 1794 in American English.

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
