I don't know what's confusing about calling something what it is, especially when there's an authoritative source that most people should have already read, or will read now. In fact,
I personally don't find it confusing - but I've come across many people who do. Since the for/foreach keywords can be used interchangable for for/foreach loops I don't find the confusion that odd.

"You should use a foreach loop there"
"No you're not"
"Yes I am - look"

"I mean you're using a C-style for loop, why not just iterate over the container"
"Oh - yeah"
I tend to always call them "C-style for loops" to save myself the effort.
