I think we can stick to terminus and pointer. It might be worth a
qualifying phrase to point out that a pointer _might_ also be a terminus. I
don't think we will need to refer to a pointer that is also a terminus
often enough that we need to make up more terms.

I am not a number. I am an undefined character.
