I think with the growing trend of labs becoming front end operations, or
filmmakers starting to use labs more and more in this fashion... and the
lack of making work prints.... editing film.... and handling and
projecting film... it does in fact make the terminology seem secretive,
or coded, or "Masonic" as Greg indicates.

I hope we can manage to retain some of this arcane language/culture.
