And, indeed, as already mentioned, easier to translate..:-)

I take the argument of "suite" being used in several tools as an
argument to increase the weight of "suite" but not a decisive

After all, tools can be changed...:-)

The terminology definition could also mention, in the case, we decide
for using "branch" that the term "suite" is also in use....until it is
removed from the tools and documentations using it.
