Archbishop of Rome, Pope John Paul II

Since only archbishops have a pallium, it seems odd to me that we don't traditionally refer to the "Archbishop of Rome" but to the "Bishop of Rome".

That's an impressive picture of John Paul II. Do you have a larger version, Father?

I think we say "Bishop of Rome" because it's an abbrev.
