So not only people will be confused by NM vs NM, but now,
you're saying that not communicating about this confusing
change will improve (in your words, "mitigate") the situation?!?
First, I don't think this was in the thread (or, I missed it).
Second, it seems reverse thinking to me, I don't get your logic.
I would have thought that communicating a lot, and telling
everyone about the new definition would have helped people to
not get confused and use the new words behind the acronym.
