I understand where you're coming from but I think it's a lost cause.
Some vendors use the marketing term "bonding". Cisco (the giant in
that market) uses EtherChannel or Gigabit Etherchannel. Other vendors
Now that IEEE-802 has defined a standard, lets stick with the IEEE
name: link aggregation.
(I regret we didn't call the driver "link_aggr" or "linkag", but
then that's my own taste.)
