Comment (by filosofo):

 Right, but what I'm saying is that the '''first''' time a user encounters
 it, it would be good to provide the domain in which the term belongs.

 We do the same for other applications when the name is generic, for
 example calling it "Word" after making it clear that the context is
 "Microsoft Word."  Otherwise people might think "Gears" within !WordPress
 refers to something particular to WP, even though it has other meanings.
 Like "Widget."
