Namaste Vapour, thank you for the post. i'm not sure why you are not directly responding to the questions that i've asked of you. it does not incline me to think that you are wanting to have a discussion on this issue, rather, you want us to comply with your demands that we no longer use the term Hinyana to describe the Theravedan school. both Samabudhi and i have asked what your concern is in this regard, as you are not a Buddhist. yet, you've not addressed that query in the least. we've established that the term was applicable to all 18 Hinyana schools until the Theravedans were the only ones left at which point the term is no longer needed. we can refer to the Theravedan school as the Orthodoxy of Buddhism and be quite accurate. we can refer to the Mahayana as the Messianic and the Vajrayana as the Apocolyptic.... though, these are simply terms that have no bearing on reality, designations of the mind, nothing more. i've already given you one source, Meeting the Buddha, by Vessantara. you can also read "Industructable Truth" by R. Ray for a concise explanation of the Tibetan Buddhist position on this issue. of course, if you'd like to read the Tibetan itself, you'll need to find some actual texts as the majority of the Tibetan works are not on the internet. Shambala press has a good selection of Tibetan works that you can consult.
