Ghosting/Unghosting Or Uncustomized/Customized Or Attached/Detached

With each new version of SharePoint comes another set of terms for this phenomenon. SharePoint 2003 brought us ghosting/unghosting; SharePoint 2007 scrapped these terms in favor of the more descriptive uncustomized/customized. Now with SharePoint 2010, the terms
attached and detached are used to prevent any ambiguity. In most SharePoint documentation, the terms ghosted/unghosted are still in use.
