That was an early proposal, and they liked "busyness" better. Go figure.

But the general feeling is that "busyness" says what we want, but it's "least-worst" given that it's not a commonly-used term and we might be seen as having goofed up "business", or some-such.

As near as I can tell, "busyness" is a word. Not widely used, since it looks like simple confusion with "business".

We have a hardware-and-software product in the cryptography and data security industry.

A developer has called a customer-requested feature a "busyness" counter.
