Good question regarding a package deal on the topcase - I'll look into it.

Pannier terminology seems to vary per manufacturer. Here is how it breaks down for us:
  • Racks - The metal frame that attaches to the motorcycle.
  • Mounts / Mounting Kit - The metal 'pucks' that allow the box to attach to the rack. These bolt to the box fit between the loop (or square) of the racks and have an arm that wraps around the opposite side of the loop to keep the box on the rack.
  • Pannier - The box itself. These are often called saddlebags.

Does that help?
