It seems that the 7z installer does not add itself into the PATH. Obviously, I could add it to the path. However, there are a lot of programs that are just single executables, so I keep a "general executables" directory in my path. So it suits me to just drop 7za into that directory.
Hence, my personal preferences are either the original "%ProgramFiles%\7-Zip\7z.exe" OR "7za.exe". "7z.exe" is just not consistent with the way 7z installs.
Have to admit though, that 7za is rather hidden away these days (under "extras", as noted by Ron).

However, my original point was just that most of the lines were "7za.exe", but a few were "7z.exe" with no apparent need for the difference.
