GeneralWhy isn't MVC called MSC instead? Pin

"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.
