What purpose does the ending "-theater" serve? Wouldn't it be better with something more descriptive and less derogative? As a non-native english speaker I might totally miss the point of the name, but I don't think so.

(I agree that such a feature should be defined, and that it probably should be disabled by default - it's just the name I'm not very fond of)
