Oh, darn! and I did so want to savagely flame!

I think you are right in some cases. Just exactly how much "technical
jargon" we need to... well, not necessarily "make" our audiences "swallow",
but more... umm, "teach them to accept" depends on a multitude of factors.
In my case my audience ranges from the technically enthusiastic to
folks who want to return to chisel and stone. Since our project is
user-driven, it behooves me to be gentle with the later, since they
could put the quabosh on the whole schmeil.

The decision to trod gently is based on more than simple job protection.
I do think the products I am documenting with help folks do their jobs.
