When a technical term is incorrect, or discovery/invention is
misattributed, the scientific and engineering communities have often
changed their terminology as evidence has warranted.
Whether *they* do or not in this case, I encourage *you* and others on the
list to use the phrase "EDVAC design," both because it is more accurate and
out of whatever respect you have for me, much as I credit Robin with idea
futures or Arthur Kantrowitz with laser launching.
