I understand, but I kind of like the term "coordinated disclosure". It is neutral and descriptive.

Second that. Let's call things what they are.

Responsible disclosure = Coordinated disclosure
Full disclosure = Early disclosure

Pejorative much?

In the world of closed source security research, it might be better to say full disclosure == disclosure at all...

Is "early" a pejorative term? Isn't being early better than being late? Isn't the early bird the one that catches the worm?

I would say "Immediate disclosure" would be more descriptive than "Early disclosure" (early compared to what?).

It takes a bit of time to write articles and test cases, so "immediate" is not that descriptive of what really happens.

And early would be compared to the release of the patch, of course.

"unilateral disclosure", to contrast with "coordinated"?

Well, "unilateral" has darker undertones than "early" to my ears, but I'm not a native English speaker. "Prompt disclosure" anyone?

I would suggest "rapid" or "independent"

I'd suggest 'knee-jerk disclosure', but that might be pejorative, inflammatory and defamatory.

Language can be, and often is, problematic. The task is to find the fewest words that adequately communicate the desired idea. Perhaps three words would better describe the process: 'responsibly coordinated disclosure'.
