Is it truly wise to have the word “tab” as part of the name of this feature? The word “tab” (when not referring to codepoint U+0009 CHARACTER TABULATION) usually refers to the specific visual indication that resembles a row of tabs in old filing cabinets. The feature itself doesn't really have that much to do with tabs of either kind.

If you look at common software outside of Emacs, "tab" is very often used for this kind of feature. E.g. browser tabs. Or similar tabs in other text editors.
