I've also have heard "bounce" used for an SMTP reject (5xx return), although that was among people who would never read a standard. I'm not real worried about that case; and I've never heard the term "bounce address" used ambiguously. Indeed, the reason I like it is because it has always had 100% recognition even among people who'd never heard the term before.
