Yes, major boo-boo.  I did not look at the particular examples but was just
summarising what Berthold generally complains about: that there are
different names for the same things (and the same name for different things).

Nevertheless, I am sure that there are a lot of people who do think
that these sort of names (and the ones we are talking about in
newmath.dtx) are the canonical names of glyphs/characters when, in
fact, as you pint out, they are just some useful names for what I am
bold enough to call mathematical entities (since otherwise I would
have to invent another name for this abstraction).  And in these
cases quoted, they are importantly different mathematical entities.

Apologies for all the confusion caused.
