What are you basing this opinion of "correct"ness on?  It seems that
the current use agrees with the original intent and many dictionary
definitions of "software".  It also seems to be internally consistent
(generating no contradictions) and we've not yet had good data presented
on legislation/treaty matters about it.  Hopefully we will.
