I didn't mean to imply otherwise. What I'm doing is distinguishing TDD,
wihch is a process, versus the kind of test being written.

TDD is *not* a kind of test. TDD is a process for developers to follow.

If one is describing a kind of test to write, “TDD” is not a helpful
term for that.

That was my contention.
