I'm all for an agreement. But until now I hear only how to NOT call
it. I'd prefer to see a counter proposal.

And of course, "C-x &" invokes a command. This is equivalent to "M-x
universal-async-argument". So I don't see what's wrong with "prefix
command" - it is a command which precedes another command.

Subject adapted.
