IMHO subtlety is best avoided. Can we go with simpler names, even if
they are slightly "incorrect"? To me, the real issue is whether they are
incorrect in a way that is easily misunderstood. If they are technically
incorrect but people get what it means anyway, that's less problematic
than coining a special-looking name just for the purpose.
