As stated at the top of the wiki page, I cast an overly wide net 
(probably) ... intentionally.
As a basis for the definition of affordance, I used the social-consensus 
meaning that I inferred from the usages observed within the LDP WG, 
informed by quick skim of [1], [2], [3].

If there is a more appropriate existing word that already fits perfectly 
an existing consensus within the WG, sure fine.  I'd be lying if I said I 
believed any such word already existed - establishing shared meanings is 
inherently a social process that requires shared experiences, and I have 
yet to see evidence of widespread durable pre-existing consensus within 
the members of this WG.  Often a strawman (and some matches) are a quick 
way to get there however ;-)

Likewise if there are particular aspects of the spec where the WG thinks 
clients can or should look elsewhere than LDP for the answers, we have 
ample means on that page to say so and move on quickly.  I offered a few 
there already to s(p)eed the process.
