I also agree, with regards to the documentation side of things at  
least (the site and wiki)

I remember when I was first making my way into the community, I was a  
little confused when I started reading about Infusion vs. Fluid.

On the homepage at it reads:
	"Fluid is a community, a product, and a collection of tools created  
by an international team of partner academic institutions.  Fluid is  
open source software that..."

which does imply that Fluid itself is a collection of tools forming a  
library or "product" but on the download page for infusion ( 
  ) it reads:

	"Fluid Infusion is a collection of rich, reusable, accessible user  
interface components built for the Web."

which to me is sounds like a description for a library as well..

so Is fluid a family of open source libraries? is Infusion the  
codename for the current fluid library that we're developing?
