Sorry, but it's still not clear to me.

AFAICT Labs are using standard Consensus, but for some odd reason are
calling it lazy consensus.
That could just be a typo, but given that lazy appears several times
that seems unlikely.

I don't wish to change the process; however I would like to ensure
that the standard terminology is used.

Therefore I like to drop the word "lazy" from the web page(s), and
point to the glossary entry for ConsensusApproval.

Does that really require a bylaw change?
