But what is true for you is not true for others.  I work with many
clients who are on a very restricted budget.  They can't afford to pay
someone to translate technical jargon into more understandable terms.

Also, there are many, many places within Drupal where help files and
terminology commonly used by end-users ("weight" is a good example),
is unnecessarily hard to grasp.
