I am so vain I though the phrase came from my suggestion for a compromise solution:
(8)  Strategically obfuscate validity by using terms or phrases that are technology neutral, like “correct syntax” or “grammar checking”.

Gez, I very much appreciated your explanation.  Despite the circular definition, your examples did distinguish between the two terms.  Although I am still not certain they *couldn’t* be used interchangeably.

That is only a partial solution to the problem.  Yes, the definition is written well enough, but that is neither the problem nor the solution.  I will try to explain better in another reply shortly.
