My comment from the bug:

We have implemented these in WebKit. I do not know if they are used.  
There are definitely mobile sites using the app cache, but I don't  
have any quantitative data.
The suggested new names don't seem sufficiently better to be worth the  
change. It seems to be standard for DOM events to be named in the  
present tense instead of the past tense - "click" not "clicked",  
"load" not "loaded", even when they tell you about something that  
already happened. If anything, "cached" is the odd man out.
