But does this mean that, like Stefan wrote in
all possible derivatives including "Pivot Table" must be avoided?

I understand the point of view of those who believe it's better being
safe than sorry, but this change would have some positive effects for
users who look for the "Pivot Table" functionality and fail to recognize
that "Data Pilot" is what they are looking for. Of course they get
accustomed, but still this sounds like a ripoff of Pivot Tables...

Hmm .. ok, seems there are different opinions in the localization teams. So let's deal
