There is no term "non-negative integer greater than zero". There's just the
term "non-negative integer", and sometimes something has to be one of those,
and simultaneously greater than zero. I don't really see much point in
introducing yet another term just for that case.

I don't want to use the word "positive" for the term because it's not
immediately clear if that includes or excludes zero.
