We could, but the reason why I'm trying to define a new term (which
I called here "destructuring pattern") is to define what happens with
pcase-let, pcase-dolist, pcase-let* where the pattern is assumed
to match.
I only meant to say that introducing a term that somebody fairly familiar
with the subject might misinterpret without reading its definition in the
manual, could be suboptimal.


But don't mind me, I don't have any alternative proposals anyway.

Neither do I,

Can someone enlighten me regarding those "holes"?  What does that
allude to?

I stole the term from Clement here: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2018-10/msg00590.html
