Hi Eyolf,Or one might turn the argument around and say that the melody is indeed trans-posed -- placed somewhere else, whereas the negative associations of dis- is that it's ended up in the wrong place...Interesting point...Really, what we're talking about is a NOTATIONAL SHORTHAND: the notes in question aren't actually TRANSPOSED or DISPLACED, just like notes in a "treble_8" clef are neither TRANSPOSED nor DISPLACED: they are simply NOTATED using a different (shorthand) method.
I think you are mistaken here, a concert A written in any clef would sound with f = 440Hz, whereas a written concert A with a 8va bracket would sound with f = 880Hz. Anything sounding at a different interval than what is notated is called transposition in orchestration books. I believe the correct term, if there need be one, would be "octave transposition".
