 Interesting, but...
 Note your words:  "We used to call it..."
  I didn't think of that one, but I think that is too obscure for the "common
Ham".  I'm not being condescending.  It's kinda' techie.  Repeater *builders*
[hardware-types] may know what COR is, but I don't think the average ham does. 
I still think Tnil is quite intuitive --- given the Txxx paradigm; which feels
pretty comfortable.  
  I like intuitive whenever possible, but intuitive depends on a common
experience base of all those affected.  What is intuitive doesn't come
naturally, it is based on a common expierence base.

   I think I may have considered "Carr", but didn't put it in the email.  That
seems moderately intuitive to me as well.
