I've been thinking we should call this feature just Clustered Indexes

So we would have "clustered tables" which are tables whose heap is ordered
according to an index and separately "clustered indexes" which are indexes
optimized for such tables?

Yes, that's what I was thinking.

There's a third related term in use as well. When you issue CLUSTER, the table will be clustered on an index. And that index is then the "index the table is clustered on". That's a bit cumbersome but that's the terminology we're using at the moment. Maybe we should to come up with a new term for that to avoid confusion..
