           Summary: simplify appcache terminology
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW

          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec bugs
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org

To keep the mental model of the specification simpler I suggest the following
changes:

* explicit section -> cache section
* online whitelist section -> network section
* explicit entries -> cache entries
* online whitelist namespaces -> network namespaces
* online whitelist wildcard flag -> network wildcard flag

This reduces the amount of terminology the document introduces and makes the
manifest syntax terminology more consistent with the specification terminology.

This will hopefully make it all a little easier to grasp.
