YEs. With serious I mean a discussion trying to cover them all in
context of how they relate to each other.

The problem is that trying to discuss them isolated one at a time looses
too much of the big picture of how they relate resulting in too many
"what is really X" questions instead of "what do we call X". And the
fact that we already are changing terminology here and there "at random"
does not really help much.
