Rename 'Normal' on a group on Normal vs Pass Through

Let me start by saying I've been using PS since 1992 and I'm a Photoshop Teacher. 
Normal vs Pass through confuses my students heavily. I understand the concept completely but when clicking their layer groups, they instinctively think their group should be set to 'Normal'.  

Has it been discussed to call that function something else?  I don't have the best word in mind, but something more intuitive would help.
Maybe just call it something descriptive like "treat group as flattened' 
or something like that...?

"Contained" sounds like the most concise way to say "Nothing inside changes stuff outside" IMO.
