yeah I kind of agree with all that. So far all those naming as been chosen
based on a technical naming side (ie bundles means something to a computer
vision developer, doesn't mean a thing to an artist)
Same confusion with, markers, trackers, ....
Same with algorithm FAST, SAD, ... all technical stuff that doesn't mean a
thing if you havn't done any computer vision dev in your life
But in another hand, matchmove is something you have to get interest in as
well. it is a discipline and not just a camera to move around :p. There are
terms you got to know as well. Reconstruction is a common one for instance.

So yeah on the overall, lots of cleaning stuff to do, and lets drop the
geeky dev side. This is a tool for artist and not for devs as far as I'm
