Also +1 on updating the terminology, they are confusing for a first time user.

+1 for updating terminology.
I have exactly the same issue since i started working with ace.

Personally i had issues with understanding the real meaning of:

They are basically the provisioning targets, management agent runs on them)
I had trouble with getting used to it but now it works. Still, to me this
term seems a bit outdates to me. (like a term from the 90s).

This is more about assigning bundle groups to gateways. Routhly speaking:
license is one possible implementation to archive this, but having license
as a core concept is really not necessary, and also confusing.
So, what i'm saying here is not just a renaming, its more about trimming the
core down and make the license concept an optional implementation "plugin".

On the other hand, bundles & groups are fairly straightforward ;)
