In the same way that the manual page (info "(Emacs)Buffers") is relevant
to the users.  This is why I mentioned this page in my reply, I thought
it would be useful for the OP to know more about buffers.

Or maybe we can take this from another perspective?

How many users are complaining about the fact that it's not easy to open
and close a file with Emacs?  As long as this is not a *major* problem,
let's not consider whether it's good or not to change Emacs terminology.

No?
