Yes you are correct. And I am not trying to be smart with you, but by all means correct them, I don't have the time to do it.
I did try about 3 times to help folks understand some of the terminology and what all the numbers for all the values meant, but it seem to me there was nobody interested.

Yes, but guess what there are some top calibrators that still use IRE's and up in there calibration reports (RGB) that they give to the clients after a calibration.
imo knowing or not knowing is becoming a non issue when using a program like Calman 5.1 and there LUT Cube calibration software. Its all automatic and the results are very good.
Maybe autocal for a normal 6 point gamut and 10 point RGB/grayscale/gamma does as good a job as CM's LUT cube workflow, I don't know.
Anyway with programs like CM, CP, LS there is becoming less and less need to know the terminology, imo.
