comment What recent programmes to alter highly-entrenched mathematical terminology have succeeded, and under what conditions do they tend to succeed or fail?
This is a good example, even if it is more than 50 years ago. Certainly "bicompact" was still current in Russian literature until quite recently. But I think it was not a matter of someone campaigning to change terminology, but just people using more sensible terminology (in their opinions) which led to more such usage over time.

comment What is the definition of maximal ε-separated set
Probably that other definition would be used only when it is known that there is a finite upper bound. Compact metric spaces and such places.

comment What is the definition of maximal ε-separated set
This is one possible meaning, and the one I would have chosen. However, it is conceivable that "maximal" means "of the largest possible size".
