You are right Marshall, they should be renamed to something
which is appropriate now, the naming is a left over from the first
days of the Cas Editor.

The reason they were not renamed yet for the 2.3.0 release is
that we should start a bigger refactoring effort to remove the project
model from the Cas Editor plugin and create a new plugin based on it
which helps users developing UIMA applications. A while
back we decided to do this after the 2.3.0 release.

Changing the names is not a big deal, but we should take into account 
that they
might be changed again for the release after 2.3.0.

+1 for the naming you suggested.
