&gt;&gt;Should we now argue that there should be only one definition for each
&gt;&gt;term? I mean, why define continuity using epsilon-delta?
&gt;
&gt; We definitely should not; even for one variable, intervals
&gt; are easier.
&gt;
&gt; Wouldn't it be nicer if
&gt;&gt;we just defined it using preimages of open sets?
&gt;
&gt; One could, but this would be more difficult than the
&gt; existence of a neighborhood mapping into a neighborhood.
&gt; This is the one which carries over to uniform spaces,
&gt; for example.
&gt;

You did catch the part where I said I was using sarcasm to make a point? I
was trying to show that often times, having multiple ways to express
something, or multiple definitions actually make things easier.
