I was not present for some of these conversations, but we at SSA use the term "screens" to cover both SW and Web pages.  Like any other single term, for SW it falls short, so any term will need supplemental information and caveats.

I suggest the approach be finding an analog instead of a single term.

might the answer be found by exploring why 'interaction context' doesn't seem to work?

a good place to start might be in finding out what the problems we have are - and then finding a way to address them.

Can someone or someones summarize the problems with interaction context?

We're quickly coming to the point in our work where we will not be able to reach consensus on the guidance for the success criteria until we come to consensus on interpretation of "web page" and "set of web pages" in the software context.

The proposal to use "interaction context" for "web page" has not yet been accepted.

We need another proposal. Ideas anyone?
