I like that -- mitigate, if not eliminate, the use of the term "field".

With that in mind, here's a question:
Say I install a stand-alone wiki, then add a farmconfig.php (a.k.a. a
global configuration file that maybe should be called
globalconfig.php) and create two more wikis.  All three are wikis, and
the two new ones are what we now would call "fields", but what is the
original wiki?  How would you describe the difference between the two
new wikis and the original?
