There's nothing wrong with giving names to phenomena if we want to talk about them, acoustic or any other. In fact it helps a lot.
Besides that: problems (or acoustic phenomena, or the warm fuzzy feeling I get when listening to it) don't disappear when given names or being talked about.
Except for psychotherapy maybe, you can't analyze away problems. _______________________________________________
