Well, I believe the term is correct, and here's why. DOF is a term used to describe the effect/result, not related to the cause. If the cause is optical, or resolution, the result is the same. If you want to qualify DOF with 'optical' or 'resolution threshold', that's fine by me. I still believe it's DOF...as both relate to the linear distance of the original scene that is considered 'in focus'.
