    But why is he bothering with this? If it needs its own unique noun, one will emerge in due time.  They always do. As noted, horseless carriage (modifying the past word "carriage", just as smart phone modifies the old word "phone") ended up being called an automobile or a car. No politician had to set up some sort of brainstorming contest. Our language is kind of organic that way.

        Like "horseless carriage" worked for awhile. And if, at some point, it doesn't work any longer there will be some virally accepted adjustment - just as there was then. Without any pol organizing a "contest".
