Table 22 is invaluable, and my proposal was intended to complement it with consistent naming. Plug still connotates cable/free to me so making it explicit for fixed applications seemed helpful.
The current names are a combination of explicit and implicit features, and here's the table I started with (the implicit features are in all-caps).
FIXED INTERNAL SAS plug
free internal SAS internal cable receptacle
FIXED INTERNAL SAS backplane receptacle
free external SAS external cable plug
FIXED external SAS external receptacle
FIXED internal SAS internal wide plug
free internal SAS internal wide cable receptacle
The current names are not inaccurate.
There is no technical issue with leaving them the way they are.
All the best,
