The term "code generation" has long referred
to the generation of assembly or machine code
by compilers. Using the term "code generation"
to describe an application generator is going to
confuse everyone including automated indexing tools
like google and literature searches.


Besides which this is not some revolutionary new technique; Lisp, compiler code generators, parser generators, sort generators, network IPC stub generators, and tons of other examples have been around since the 1960's.
