I dislike the term "Open Core" because whenever I see it I always think of OpenCores. Which is, as far as I know, the older term (from 1999 according to the FAQ). It can get really confusing: when you say "open core", are you talking about a freely licensed IP core (a good thing), or what is described above (a not-so-good thing)? My first reaction is always "good thing" (since I knew of OpenCores from way before I first heard that new usage).
