Agreed -- I've queued this to take place after I've shuffled content from the texinfo page to the man page.

Towards the front of the manual, there should be a section for defining terms used in Screen documentation; at least (and sufficiently) the following confusing terms, which Screen uses for very distinct concepts:

display (not to be confused with, e.g., a monitor or a terminal)
window (not to be confused with X windows and such)
region (but referred to as "canvas" in the sources; Screen "region" corresponds to "window" in Emacs or ncurses)
