If you'd like to exchange private email on that topic, you can reach me at

I encountered two uses of the term "RS/6000" while working on the 64-bit
AIX support:
  (1) the IBM platform;
  (2) the architecture used to implement the RS/6000 platform prior to the
      introduction of PowerPC.

Can you be more specific about which messages seem confusing?  Are you
referring to the variants[].description fields?  They're not actually used
anywhere at the moment, but I'd like to fix them if they're misleading.
