Again: if one wants to be a successfull admin, one really needs to know more 
about Drupal. IMHO you cannot be a successfull car engineer if you dont know 
about the ideas behind an engine. But you cna be a successfull driver without 
that knowledge. You can only be a successfull admin if you know about nodes, 
menus, taxonomies etc. But you can be a user without all that knowledge. 

This, however, does not mean that we cannot make things better and easier. But 
it means that we should not estimate our admins as complete morons. A moron 
cannot be  an admin. Even if we make our admin area moron proof. 
So to turn this around: we can use correct yargon, for admins, for we can 
expect them to learn about that yargon. Esp if that means that in the end the 
admin knows better what it is about. (meaning: the yargon was used correct)
