It sounds that, as soon after this patch gets merged, the mailing lists
will be flooded by lots of patches replacing such terms with something
else :-(

Doing a quick look at the media subsystem, it sounds that most terms
come from I2C master/slave and DiSEqC terminology, as defined by their
specs (and the others seem to be derived from some hardware vendor
specific terminology).

As they're all supported by the current specs, if one would want
to replace them, it should first ensure that the supporting specs
should be using a different terminology, as otherwise replacing
them would just make harder for anyone trying to understand the
code.

Thanks,
Mauro
