I was saying that the difference is bosonic nature betwixt the Highs and
the photon, the W_(±) and Z_0 bosons, and gluons is not conceptually
great enough to justify treating them differently since the graviton is
treated as the latter four are and is somewhat similarly different

[Except for the fact that we can be briefer and more "obvious" with the
meaning of lujvo (rather than zi'evla). For example, xigyka'u would be
"Higgs boson" (like tsabyka'u would be "gluon").]
