Am I in the right direction saying this can be narrowed to a 
labelling issue? I think this is mainly what confuses people. I have 
no problem discovering a new set of tools, a new approach to 
something or anything different from what we're used to. Only, it has 
to be clear! From what I read on the list, I see many people having 
the same concern. It's a "what does what" basic questionning. And I 
am not ready to throw away the solution the Team came up with at this 
moment, only the way it's labelled! Words, Words, Words!
