The fixed and free has problems in SAS with introduction of the compact
4x internal connector and cable system. This system has the opposite
genders from the existing SFF-8484 internal 4x system, thus, if fixed
and free follow the gender, the fixed on one system would be the free on
the other. Cable receptacle and cable plug give a clear description of
the two different systems with the least amount of words. Fixed and free
seem to have little merit, but like you said, it is a flawed system and
I believe the confusion caused by it is greater than the benefit. I
prefer to avoid the fixed and free designations.
