This is the core of what I wrote. Do you disagree?

No, I did not define anything. I said, I believe accurately, that this
is the, or at least one common understanding of 'variable/fixed width
encoding. To repeat, it one is writing to be understood, rather than
create an effect, and one uses a word or phrase in a non-standard
fashion (which I myself do occasionally), then it is clearer to say what
one is doing (which I try to also do).
