I disagree. I think finding, "Krypton," or a planet that has the likely real life chractertics of Krypton as described in the superman comics and films makes astrophysics interesting to a lot more people than calling it planet AEY-312 and perhaps encourages younger people to get into the field.
I think publicly revealing the location of the planet Krypton is the height of scientific misconduct, needlessly exposing Superman's home planet to any number of potentially hostile forces just to get a few sound bites on the evening news.
