Comes down to how much baggage we want to inherit from existing terminology or 
names. ie Whenever I am talking about Java "Optional Packages/Extensions" I 
basically have to point people at relevant spec page because it is 
meaningless generic term (and inconsistent with other java terminology).

Terms like "jar",  "servlet" or "EJB" held no meaning prior to being used and 
thus carried no baggage. You either knew what they were or you didn't.
