There is no such hard-and-fast definition of "mockup".  You used
one interpretation, and a valid one at that, others have a different one,
equally valid.  

I do lots of prototyping and mocking-up of things and I see no 
difficulty in calling either approach a "mockup".  For those of you
who, perhaps, don't deal with mockups much, please understand that 
the term really just means "this is not the real thing, but exists
to encourage and assist discussion", and nothing more.
