How about "cubit"? That one hasn't been used for awhile. ;)

Seriously, you're in the impossible position of inventing, defining and scoping language. You're after a synonym for "component" (one of similarly nebulous scope) that'll be distinct only in the private taxonomy of your docs. Whatever you choose, it'll still be a component.

Maybe it's "components" all around, damn the torpedoes.

Unless there's an opening for "subsystem". Dunno.
