We can't call it "widget chrome" since this specification is not widget specific.

I think that you're trying to read too much into a simple definition, and also not taking into account the fact that the goal is not to write a constraining UI specification but rather to provide descriptions that map to existing platform behaviours. That is pretty well defined for chrome and chromeless windows, but does not map to other things such as preventing context menus or dialogs.
