I am sure most of them (being typography snobs) will understand that 'newspaper' means "really bad breaks".

Perhaps the problem is with the 'normal' rather than the 'loose'.  Normal for who?  In what sorts of circumstances?

Perhaps "newspaper"-like] and "book"[-like] and so on are more indicative than first thought?
