It looks like the term is fairly settled in the community, and what
studying linguistics has tought me is fighting that is an uphill battle,
optimistically speaking.  Not to mention just coining a new term would
only add to the confusion.

There is even a duality of terms: distribution and starter kit.  The
former seems to apply to larger, all encompassing, framework like
constructs, like Spacemacs and Doom; whereas starter kits are more like
nicer defaults and some popular packages, with less intervention as to
how user interacts with Emacs and configures it.
