The definition of curve aligns with the current behavior; today's 'rounded' corners are 
in fact elliptical - as you note, x and y can be different though they default to the 
same thing - and they do form a convex curve. 

The naming is somewhat questionable since 'scoop' is also a curve and is a pretty poor
term imo.  If convex and concave are too tricky, maybe curve-outside/curve-inside?
