It's not a new term, its generic in Heat, but it's also arguably
incorrect here because as Jay says, this isn't the resource itself,
its a description of what will go in the template definition to
request that heat deploy instances.

Instance Type would be horribly confusing IMNSHO - too close to
http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/instance-types/ - which it is not at all
