I believe it is the origin of the name but not of the functionality. Indeed
before doing some flash few years ago, I didn't know that name was used.
Once I knew the name, I discovered tons of libraries.

The thing is before that, to me, it was value animation, applied either on
graphics positions, alpha, effects intensity, sound volume or other
effects, etc.
But when you say value animation it feels weird so I guess everybody felt
having a name like Tween(ing/er) was easier to identify what we're talking
value animation is also too generic as it include things like
steering-behaviours that really are a different (and more reactive) way of
doing procedural animation.
