Should we just call CTE dementia pugilistica? There's a strong argument for that in my opinion. It's not like there have been particularly substantial discoveries on the disease as received by the scientific community in the recent past. The only problem with the term dementia pugilistica is that it implies it only occurs in boxers. As far as your second paragraph goes, the editor's note in the Randolph piece mentions that it received the standard peer reviewed process. "This paper was originally solicited as part of the Point – Counterpoint series. It received the standard peer review process."
