Is "item context" what we're calling scalar these days, or something else?

According to S03, it does indeed appear that "item context" is the
current terminology for what perl 5 called "scalar context":

 The item contextualizer

     item foo()

 The new name for Perl 5's scalar contextualizer. Equivalent to $().
We still call the
 values scalars, and talk about "scalar operators", but scalar
operators are those
 that put their arguments into item context.
