I agree, the name is a bit confusing when you're not used to it.
Renaming it is easy. To the native speakers reading it: What should it be called? (please try to come up with something shorter than "request for enhancement")
Also I find that, by definition, RFE and feature requests are not exactly the same. There's a thin line between a new feature and an enhancement that is supposed to fill a gap/improve things. Should they really be treated the same way ?
I don't understand the difference. Can you please explain it? Are there features that are not enhancements (and if so, why would anybody request them), or are there enhancements which are not features? Are they entirely disjoint sets of things?
The differences are so minimal that it feels like squabbling over minute semantics.
