I think that having one name for two radically different, though related,

2 main technologies that people care about:
1. The Zope app server. This is characterized by things like an object

course-grained add-ons, etc.
I must warn you that what you call 'app server' is not what I call app
server; I believe that using the word appserver for this set of
technologies could be very confusing to people. I believe Zope 3 is an
application server. I believe, say, Django is an application server too,
even though as far as I know it lacks an object file system and through
the web scripting. Can we find another word for what you mean?
