I think everyone agrees that changing might be the a right move (for other reasons). But none of the proof provided anywhere suggest the origins are truly proven, as far as I am concerned. Maybe the person that first committed that had a different notion altogether. Personally when it comes to other usages (databases) the references are clear. Here they are not, what the proof provides is that certain people are tempted to use it with the wrong context.
