But we're not always clear about when we're talking about an abstraction, vs. when we're using one of these terms to talk about an implementation or a service.

The established terms are actually rather precise and refer to the networking abstraction, not an implementation.

Good luck trying to get everyone to use these or any other terms, in exactly the way you want them to use them, on any particular occasion.

As far as I can tell, people use words imprecisely, and to mean slightly different things in different contexts, because it's so often useful or necessary for them to do so.  There's nothing new or odd about this.
