AFAIU, elements = greater-elements ∪ lesser-elements
The current syntax draft contains section "Greater elements" defining
all the greater-elements and section "Elements" defining lesser-elements
However, the word "elements" also refers to all possible elements in
some parts of the draft.
I propose to remove the ambiguity by referring to members of
org-element-greater-elements as "greater elements"; to
org-element-all-elements - org-element-greater-elements as "lesser
elements"; and to org-element-all-elements as just "elements".

Sorry, I do not understand what you refer to here.
