Ok then.  I think I got confused by the common usage of this term, which

Names are very important.  When someone who's not familiar with the code
is trying to figure it out, if the name of a function or an interface
inmediately evokes an idea of what it does, that person won't have to
check.  It makes working with GRUB much more efficient.
