Moving this from the 'Adding Administration Menus' thread to a new one.

See http://codex.wordpress.org/User:MDAWaffe/WordPress_Terminology

To answer Lorelle's question: it's not meant to be documentation at 
all.  This page is meant as a Sandbox for people to make suggestions 
regarding consistent nomenclature.

And Kaf's: the Glossary is the natural choice.  My point is that I 
don't believe there exists consistent WP specific terms yet.  That user 
page of mine can be scrapped after terms are decided.

Perhaps this is too anal though?  Should things be more
