Sorry, I apparently missed part of your earlier note.
Would text like:
This document uses the term "on-the-wire" to talk about the
information used by routing systems. This term is widely used in IETF
RFCs,but is used in several different ways. In this document, it is
used to refer both to information exchanged between routing protocol
instances, and to underlying protocols that may also need to be
protected in specific circumstances. Individual protocol analysis
documents will need to be more specific in their usage.
work to address the issue?

This text would note that it is a widely used term in IETF documents,
including many RFCs. It would also state for clarity that in this
document it is used to refer to the message sent from one routing
process to another.
Apparently, this does not address Joe's concern.
"message sent from one routing process to another" doesn't seem to be
right to me either since it sounds like the first definition that
covers routing protocol data only, and not underlying protocols, so I
wouldn't expect that proposal to address Joe's concern.
