Yes, the fact that their naming scheme is all over the place with extension, component, module, plugin, when overall they are lumped together at the highest level as *extensions* that is all they should ever be referred to as.

That would be getting into functional (how as opposed to what) discussion so yes that should be a separate topic since the only reason I started this one was to identify the future terminology that should be used to refer to what are currently known as MOD's. The sooner the official terms are defined the sooner people can stop writing

but you can keep going with your implementation discussion in this topic, there is no structure or organization to any of them anymore and I fell off the wagon yesterday so I don't care if my topic gets hijacked.
