We don’t want to use the term “new” anywhere---what’s new today is old tomorrow. Once 4PPoE is part of Clause 33, nothing is new.

Good point Fred and I concur. Let's just use "4P PSE/PD."
During the June 20 IEEE 802.3 4P Study Group, ad-hoc the team okayed “new 4P PSE/PD,” for the proposed PD and PSE additions. I would prefer to use “4P PSE/PD.” This is partially because I do not like typing the extra word and because there will be many new terms that we do not want to preface with “new.” The IEEE 802.3-xxx standards have no reference to 4P—i.e., no old 4P PD/PSE.
If you have a concern with using “4P PD/PSE” for the proposed PD and PSE additions, please explain why.
