There is when it makes no sense. A "term" that describes something should make sense and be truthful.

No need to relearn and confuse with a second term,

Since it makes no sense it is inherently confusing.

which nobody can remember.

It's easier to remember things that make sense.

If soneone don't like the term pixel peeping, he is free to not use it. But as you see and read or write the established term, everyone understands it.

Wrong. The typical amateur to digital photography is typically confused by it, unsurprisingly.

No problem here. Its just a term, describing a complex act. Nothing stupid.

Yes, it's "stupid" because it does not describe properly a supposedly "complex act."
