Hi Manu, Joseph, All

Given that there seems to be a consensus on removing non-fiat. I'm happy to proceed. The easiest, at a first glance, is to just remove the term and not open another can of worms by adding a new term. I believe that the idea is very well conveyed and I feel we don't need to go further.
I implemented this change (removing the problematic term).
