Seems to me that a), e) and g) are all pretty much the same. Obviously the other definitions are a lot of nonsense. I guess I'll be a good sheep and follow the flock so, for no other reason than that I'm easily led, I'll pick the middle one of those and go for e).

B definitely. If it's not correct, it should be. We need such a term for such displays.
