I must say that once mouse-2 is no longer a synonym to "yank" it
became a tad harder to explain what one means.  Is there a widely
accepted term for what mouse-2 does in this context?  The spec
everybody seem to quote still calls this "paste", so if there's no
better term, we will have to get used to saying "paste from PRIMARY",
"paste from CLIPBOARD", etc.  And, of course, there's the
Emacs-specific gripe that only one of them is no a synonym to "yank".

"Paste the current selection" perhaps? It is not technically correct, a program can set PRIMARY without using selections, but it is close enough.
