I fully agree.

I see that in the AWWSW context 'entity' is not an appropriate term for the super-class, we choose it as we thought it was general enough. The reason not to go for 'media object' was that some standards use it for parts into which content can be decomposed, we avoided 'resource' as annotation could refer to different levels.

It seems whatever we choose, we will clash with some other terminology ;-) 
So the most important thing is to define the terms we are using well and explain how they relate to terms used in other work.

Best regards,
Werner
