Keep in mind that we're not necessarily targeting mathematicians. Rather, 
our typical developer is some random scientist trying to get stuff done in 
their respective field of research, such as biology.

I have not met a biologist yet, for example, who understood without 
explanation what I mean when I used the word 'tensor'.

And we're still talking about image processing, not tensor processing.

Sure, we could try to do the same as certain *cough cough* companies 
introducing their own nomenclature. But I do not like this.
