Apologies, I do have dyslexia, subject should read... seemingly not seemly.

The following line should read...
(While nodes are collapsed) it becomes possible for math and vector math 
nodes to have a seemingly identical name and appearance.

I notice the two nodes in question have different socket inputs which 
helps differentiate to some extent, still like how other nodes provide 
header names rather than function, this in itself is of course subjective.
