I like passlist/blocklist! Way more explicit :D
Allowlist/Denylist on the other hand feel like a mouthful.

The alternatives to master/slave don't convince me though.
I think main is the best replacement for master. Short and clear.
But I haven't found yet an alternative for slave that doesn't feel over-complicated, too long or insufficient. Maybe secondary? 🤔
