To me, it's a matter of effective communication. If someone invited me to dinner and told me they were serving pizza, I would not be expecting a potato crust and no sauce.
I think this stems in part from my background as a PC technical support specialist. Many people don't know what the various components of computers are called and so when you're trying to troubleshoot a problem, you have to question them carefully to find out what may have caused it. I can't tell you how many times people have said, "well, that's just what I call it," when you try to teach them the correct terminology.
That's why we have language and definitions - to facilitate effective communication.
