Among other things, I'm fascinated by how this thread has turned into a
discussion of something quite different from the original question.

>From what I can tell from various job descriptions and postings, the term you
want (alas!) is Business English.

(Strictly speaking -- to follow the _other_ variant on this thread -- in the
spirit of etymological and historial precision, the phrase you want probably
isn't lingua franca. But that's academic nitpicking for you. I liked your
original use of the term, anyway.)
