Github user StephanEwen commented on the issue:
    I am a bit skeptical about these types of changes.
    Maintaining stability of Flink is crucially important now. With changes 
like these we risk introducing subtle bugs without fixing a bug or improving a 
functionality or anything. It just changes a naming preference.
    The kind of bugs one can introduce with changes like that are very subtle 
(we have seen that in cases where the cancelling logic was fragile depending on 
how the flag was exactly set) and hard to catch all in reviews. Not everything 
is fully covered by bullet proof tested in practice.
    I would actually suggest to rather contribute on issues where there is a 
clearer benefit.
