> IMHO as soon as you use terms like "receives" or "accepts", you are still talking about arguments.

Even PEP 362 is loose with its language in this regard.  For example, at the beginning of the "Signature Object" section:

"For each parameter accepted by the function it stores a Parameter object in its parameters collection."

And at the beginning of the "Parameter Object" section:

"Python's expressive syntax means functions can accept many different kinds of parameters with many subtle semantic differences."
