In a sense, it does. But if one were to name the wrong standard and if
this word were narrow in some sense which included "the type" of that
standard, then one would be absuing the word, although they might be
understandable semantically. Lojban defaults to semantic vagueness, so
that is what I would propose in this case, in order to clear up any
questions about abuse. :)
