It's not a good precedent to define as trolls anyone who might legitimately disagree, nor is it a good precedent to bypass discussion entirely. IMO, Serhiy's request was reasonable and shouldn't be dismissed.

For this particular change, I'm +1 because it represents an industrywide terminology shift, because it makes a proactive effort to be responsive to cultural problems, and because the change doesn't impair clarity.  

That said, I concur with Serhiy that there should be a discussion before making a unilateral and stealthy change to the rules about how people are allowed to write technical prose.
