I would find that very confusing in Smerge.
"A" and "B" are the names used in the documentation.

Which documentation? If Smerge documentation, then it should be fixed to update to the convention of upper/lower?

Yes, the smerge documentation, and no, because UPPER and LOWER are wrong, in some use cases.
"UPPER" and "LOWER" are useless since they don't match up with anything else (the conflict markers and the documentation).

I have never found that convention confusing.. We are strictly speaking of the use of upper/lower in Smerge.

I'm not sure what you mean. We're talking about the same change. Perhaps its effects are wider than you think.
"UPPER" and "LOWER" are confusing since they are often shown on the left and right respectively.

Hmm, the conflicts don't show up left/right for me.. How are you using Smerge?

Please see my reply to Stefan.
How are you using it?
Why is this change good? What am I missing?

Well, it worked great for me. FYI, I am just an Smerge user (not contributor), and this was a welcome change for my use case.. never done conflict merging using Smerge using left/right orientation as you suggest.
