   On the other hand, words like stack imply an implementation strategy,
   which may not be what we intend.

Do they now?  So when I talk about a "spaghetti stack", I'm automatically 
risking that someone will assume I'm prescribing an implementation?  I'm
finding that claim a little hard to swallow.
