Also, Bokeh implies dementia, and Alzheimer's disease is (at least viewed in the Japanese culture) in the same category. It could a real insult to some people in certan ages and certain health and mental conditions.

For example, my grandmother, who is 91 years old, is a little too sensitive to hear the word, "bokeh." She doesn't know anything about the technicality of photography at all.
