i've worked within medicine in my previous life as an ER doc and guess 
what
there is no formal naming standardisation within it, at least not one that 
there is any sort of agreement over, though people have been trying for 
centuries to sort something out.
some use latin, some use greek, some use anglified terms, others will use 
their own language's interpretations of disease
google helps but the variation between differing nations medical 
terminology can lead to a total breakdown in communication when one relies 
on a written record.
Also, some of the less obvious jargon is derived from the name of the 
company (that owns the patent) that makes the device that's used in the 
treament of the disease.
"we threw a quick austin-moore into Mrs McGinty this morning"
using inpenetrable, rapidly-geographically-changing terminology is part of 
the mechanism used to obfuscate the publically available knowledge that is 
part of the (evil) process of preserving professional autonomy. not a good 
thing for medics to do but tends to be repeated in other industries as 
well
-three letter acronym anyone?

Isn't the complete lack of naming standardization in the AV industry
simply amazing? Imagine that were the case in science, particular
medicine...

Makes for a nice game of AV bingo though...
