Anne, along those lines I have a glossary started for OpenStackClient
use[1] of these object names.  I elected to not always follow the REST API
names (servers vs instances is a great example) in an effort to make sense
from a user perspective.

While nice, I don't see a requirement that these agree, but this may be a
useful starting point for your list.
