I second that motion.

I'm currently having a debate with Macintosh-based ISP's who have fallen
into the habit of using "multihoming" to refer to virtual domain
webservers and now the software industry is starting to do it as well
(see http://www.macweek.com/mw_1103/gw_tenon.html for an example).

If we don't have a shared language, we can't communicate.
