Actually, this is what prompted my question in the first place: we have
three different terms for it in use right now, and it's confusing which one
means what, or how each should be used. It sounds like you see two different
functionalities in WP right now....am I reading this right? If that's the
case I'd like to hear more and understand the differences. Thanks :)

And I agree that we have to be careful of the noobs and non-techies who use
WP. But it seems like some would disagree -- that we need to cater to the
techies, and let the rest of the world catch up. Again, something for the WP
core development team to decide, I guess. :)
