Is “lightweight” descriptive enough if we are essentially discerning pre-emptive threads from cooperative ones, or kernel ones from user land ones? Would it therefore be more useful to introduce a hierarchy reflecting the scheduling nature nature of a thread?

Also, as a term, “lightweight” tends to survive only until something more lightweight comes along.
