Remember these are suggestions for going forwards, not requirements for
changing everything.  We tend to be a community that likes make work
projects because they're easier to do than solving the hard problems,
but since we have over 100k occurrences of the various words in the
kernel, changing them all would cause massive churn and disrupt forward
development, which would cause way more harm than any gain from the
change.
