This has been one of my big bug-bears for a number of years. We rail
on about proprietary format software (Hi, Bill), but very few people get up
in arms about 'proprietary' lingo.

Our job, as **communicators**, is to communicate. Common language is
important. Regardless of how 'appropriate' or descriptive we think a term
is, once it is in common usage, we tamper at both our' and our reader's peril.
