I see no need to re-define a word that is already defined. Nor do I need to do anything you say.

In photography, exposure is the quantity of light reaching a photographic film, as determined by shutter speed and lens aperture. In digital photography "film" is substituted with "sensor".

This is from Wikipedia but came fron the Oxford dictionary. It was updated to remove a bad definition created by someone like yourself.

Someone obviously needs to put back the 'bad' definition. You should read the next bit - 'Exposure is measured in lux seconds, and can be computed from exposure value(EV) and scene luminance in a specified region.'. Once you find out what is the unit 'lux' it makes it clear that the 'bad' definition was the right one.
