This is probably one of those matters that depends upon the text you're
using. If your textbook uses this definition, some students might actually
read it (wouldn't that be nice!) and being consistent with that content
could be pedagogically worthwhile. I don't think there is likely to be any
unwanted or unexpected consequence from simply overlooking that usage if
your text doesn't push it. My first post on this topic was not to suggest
that this usage is somehow superior, but to show that there might be a
reasonable rationale behind choosing to go that way.
