You don't change the name of a column by the same reason why you don't change a method name in an interface. What is the benefits with changing a column name? If you really need to change column (or table) names, I suggest the use of constants while building your SQL statements, or a framework (such as butler.sourceforge.net) that allows you to change names at any time. Or just go to the Edit menu and choose Search/Replace.
