      If everyone is a manager there is little need to label anyone a manager.

      This will depend, of course, on what definition of manager you are using

      Under your definition, I think, pretty much everyone is a manager (everyone manages time, for instance). 

      For me a manager is allocated some resources (sometimes these are people - yes, I know - but can be other things) and is accountable for getting things done with those resources. Under my definition, the SM is not a manager.

      Definitely not true. Scrum Master is a managerial role. Even getting teams to self-organize and self-managing need some management skills. Managing the Scrum ceremonies schedules also need some time management skills. In large organisation, the Scrum Master is a change agent, he brings change so that Scrum may happen. The changes needs to be managed. You are right that the Scrum Master does not manage the team, but the Scrum Master manage the Scrum process, he even manage change in order to make it  happen.
