It is more about delivery of product than development of the the product. Value is only achieved when we deliver it and real feedback can be received. Until the product is delivered the value is zero.
The scrum.org mission is to "improve software delivery"! So delivery is most probably more appropriate too.
I think emphasizing the development team is more about delivery than development is a better approach.
It also reduces the confusion with software programmers which is just a constant annoyance conversation. But this conversation highlights one of the confusions people have about the guide. I feel we should adapt and try rid these confusions as this is what will address zombie/dark/fake scrum.
