While I appreciate your general approach, I'm forced to ask:

Is this the methodology that was followed which got us to the  
existing mixup of confusing terminology and inconsistencies in the UI?

There's been an outpouring of support for the proposal to keep the  
existing terminology, but to use it consistently in the UI.  Why is  
there resistance to just fixing that in D6 while we still can,  
instead of further delaying it with other hoops to jump through?
