This page just summarizes what different people have proposed. I tried to
alter the proposals as little as possible.

Sure, feel free to add that statement. But I wouldn't replace all
occurrences of List and Collection with XXXX as that makes it hard to read
the proposals. Just the disclaimer is enough.

Mine is for Collection as most of these will be unordered. We will then also
have to decide how to support ordered collections, aka lists.
