A German saying goes: Names are just sound and smoke. Umberto Eco sees 
it differently. Take your pick :)

Personally, I think the term "block" should be avoided like all terms, 
which refer to something that actually exists and is used. Otherwise 
we'll later talk about "Avalon blocks" vs. "Phoenix blocks" vs. "Cocoon 
blocks" and things become fuzzy.
