I find terms like 'YANG server' or 'YANG-based server' a bit confusing
since the server is not talking YANG (there is no YANG protocol) and
the server is also not sending/receiving YANG but YANG-defined data.

Unless there is a possibility of confusion, importing the 'server'
definition from RFC 8342 and using the terms 'server' is perhaps good
enough.
