You might not be dumbing down Drupal but you would have dumb down me.  
I didn't even know the work taxonomy before Drupal.  I'm glad it was 
there for me to learn.  Rather than a focus on changing the terms in 
Drupal why not focus on educating those who don't know what it is.  
Perhaps better help context in the taxonomy module might help those who 
don't know.  What I find more disturbing is the multiple use of terms 
within the Drupal Schema; vid means what, vocabulary id, version id,
