We cannot find a common ground between AmE and
BrE by resorting to medical/technical terms.
Indeed, such colorful puns as manual labor (hard
work/delivering docs) would be lost if we try to
avoid 'labor/labour' and try to find technical
terms for them.

Not really, technical terms are skewed against
ornery folks; thus you are excluding a majority
of us if you use tech terms, which is NOT p.c.

However, if a word is very offensive, then you go
with the technical term. Costs as above
applicable :-)
