WC-1 and WC-NG meaning of "working"

This is how I understand the mapping of terms:

WC-1 language WC-NG language
--------------------------------------------------------------------
"the working version" ACTUAL_NODE
--------------------------------------------------------------------
"the base" WORKING_NODE if present, else BASE_NODE
"the pristine version"
--------------------------------------------------------------------
"the revert-base" BASE_NODE
  (when BASE_NODE differs
   from WORKING_NODE)
"the base"
  (when BASE_NODE same as
   WORKING_NODE)
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you think it's time to bite the bullet and rename at least
"WORKING_NODE" to "RESTRUCTURED_NODE", as discussed before? I think
that would help to alleviate some sources of confusion.

(One could make an argument for changing "BASE_NODE" too, but I think it
is quite a good name despite the WC-1 "base" terminology not always
matching it.)
