Unfortunately, considering the decades of literature referring to 4X4
homogeneous transformation matrices, along with the many thousands of
engineers and software developers trained to use that description, I
believe that at this point the only realistic option is to expand the
definition to include the actual usage of the phrase, beyond pure
mathematics, as that usage is not likely to change. This is the nature
of the evolution of language.
