Current terminology for DHCP client and server in RFC3315 is:

DHCP client (or client):  A node that initiates requests on a link  to
obtain configuration parameters from one or more DHCP servers.
DHCP server (or server):  A node that responds to requests from
clients, and may or may not be on the same link as the client(s).

If we just stick to this terminology, there is nothing in it that
precludes it's use for PDs, as the node is a general term. So, I agree
that we should use client, server and relay for prefix delegation,
which would make editorial work way easier.
