A goal of someone trying to help photographers understand how to get the best picture quality from their cameras should be to communicate clearly with those photographers. Compare "amount of light on the sensor" (or "density of light" you're so inclined) with "exposure". Which is more likely to get the thought across rather than result in confusion or arguments with most people?

I agree with you. While I can appreciate that people want to introduce technically correct lingo in photography, however, ad hoc terms such as "density of light", etc., without proper qualification, are confusing, in IMHO. I'm not even sure that the proponents of such terms fully understand what they are trying to say.
