Perhaps they're confusing "tightly coupled" with "strongly typed" - similar sound, almost oppposite meaning?
Don't you hate it when useful terms suffer semantic rot... [OT - I've
just been reading a 1956 detective story where the hero remembers
"experimentally making love" to another student, and I'm honestly
baffled - just when did that phrase start referring to sexual rather
than social intercourse?]
