GeneralWhy isn't MVC called MSC instead? PinprofessionalB. Clay Shannon7-May-14 12:33 
"A rose by any other name would smell just as sweet."
 
No doubt.
 
But what you call things does matter. Abe Lincoln trumps the bard this time (paraphrased): "If you call a tail a leg, how many legs does a dog have? ... Four! It doesn't matter what you *call* a tail, it's still a tail, not a leg."
 
The "View" in Model-View-Controller (MVC) should be called "Sensory," not "View" because, quoting "Programming Android" by Mednieks, Dornin, Meike, and Nakamura (the "Droidians of 4"):
 
"...a view is the portion of the application responsible for rendering the display, sending audio to the speakers, generating tactile feedback, and so on."
 
IOW, it's not just about visuals; it's also about audibles and "tactibles."
 
Who comes up with this nomenclature? Calling stuff by non-optimal names makes it harder to perceive just what is what. Maybe the software development profession should have a body, like the Académie française[^]to keep stuff like this in check.
