Other than PITR, what situations?

PITR is used by a minority of our users.  Binary replication, if not
already used by a majority, will be in the future (it's certainly the
majority of my professional clients).  Further, PITR is usually
something which is either handled by vendor backup management software,
or by professional DBAs, whereas replication is used by developers with
little or no DBA support.

Why should we make terminology obscure for the majority usecase to make
it clear for the minority one?  Especially since the majority use-case
has almost all the newbies?
