Just to clarify... your concern is two fold:
1. No term is perfect, Cartesian Tier is as good as any, lets stick  
with it.
2. There are already references to cartesian tiers (like this  
thread :), lets stick with it.

The counter arguments are:
1. 'Tile' or 'Grid' immediately make more sense to the uninitiated
2. If we are going to pick a term, now is the time.

The difference in opinion (as far as I can tell) is that everyone  
except Patrick is looking at this as a new API, not as an existing  
one.  The spatial bits of lucene/solr, it is now quite different then  
localsolr, as such, i'm not sure concern about breaking references  
makes much sense.
