If someone objects to the semantic loading in a term, they're not required to accept it just because its convenient for the people using it.
We have to weigh what seems reasonable though. And we do need to account for the perspective it is coming from. It always seems to come from people who are hostile to the style itself. As demonstrated in your post where it isn't just about the term but also about a clear issue with the style (provided I am reading your negativity correctly). You can criticize a term. But outside a small circle of posters in this forum, I haven't encountered the negative reaction to skilled play you are describing. This is literally the only place I've seen it. At the table, with gamers from different styles, skilled play simply hasn't prompted this kind of reaction in my experience. And again, once a term has currency and is used within a style to communicate, it is very disruptive to start chaining the language. It is how people are communicating ideas. I am sure some people find adopting a whole new vocabulary easy. I personally don't at all.
