I think you have to define your terms when you describe the various
LED statuses.

People who program LEDs use "blink" for 50/50 on/off, "pulse" for a
brief flash with a long off period, and "fade" for continuous
variation. As you note, there are a lot of ways a fade could be
implemented, e.g. steady on and off, gradually fading up and then
suddenly off, blink three times and fade out, etc.
