actually, you are not the only one, many (off list+on list) shared the same
opinion and then I had to explain Bogon to them (exactly as you explained
in second para) :) somewhere during the initial discussion of this proposal
there were some points about bogons vs martians and sometimes the terms are
confusing as well to operators as they use it differently, I agree.

Your edits are providing clear description, I will accomodate in the v3.
