Description

Yes, I know this is an immense amount of work.

However, it would make things much easier for everyone in the long run. New users get confused about this all the time (especially when they hear of zvols and immediately start to misinterpret basic information) and it's an endless source of frustration for the community when trying to help them. It's also confusing for users with ZFS experience who are new to FreeNAS, since they reasonably expect to see "pool" used throughout. It's also one less thing for the docs team to worry about, long-term (though it is a lot of work short-term, some of it may be needed due to the new GUI anyway).
