"Beat" also refers to what a conductor would do. the 3+3+2 from my example would be given as three "beats" by the conductor. Maybe your perception of "beat" as necessarily regular comes from the fact that in German we use "beat" too, but usually referring to specific styles that are limited to regular beats ...

Ah yes, and in contemporary music, where heavily irregular metres like 3/8 + 2/16 + 3/16 + 4/8 + 1/12 are common we'd also always refer to that as a measure with 5 beats of different length.
