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?]
