I think this is a matter of documentation and explanation. Anyone working 
longer than a week with Zope 3 knows what our extended concept for a site is. 
Terms always overlap accross problem domains, this is nothing new. We need to 
stop thinking that our branch of engineering/science is special and that we 
have to reinvent everything.

After reading the first sentence, I was against it. After reading your 
explanation this sounds like a good idea, so +1 from me.
