If Dave+Michael's suggestion of replacing "classic" with "normal" is 
agreable to others, this seems like a good way forward to me. It should 
be easy enough to explain in other SDOs that classic and normal mean the 
same thing, if this is a real issue.

(FWIW, I've never had a problem myself with "classic", nor read any 
negative connotations to it.  However, for the sake of working group 
progress, I think we just need to pick something that seems the least 
terrible and agree to move on.)
