Merge with Braid?[edit]

Seems like plait and braid should be merged... Is the usage of the word plait to mean a pleat common enough in any English speaking region of the world to make combining them a bad idea? Dfred 21:55, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

And after additional consideration I also propose that a Disambiguation page be left for Plait with choices for both braid and pleat usages. Please comment on this idea also. TNX --Dfred 16:30, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

Sounds fine to me. —Keenan Pepper 22:41, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
Makes sense. Is there a minimum required level of consensus on small things like this or should we just go ahead? --Rob* 10:22, 14 October 2006 (UTC)
Since suggesting this I've been working on some other knotting articles... In doing research for those I've started to realize that the terminology for braids, plaits, and sinnets/sennits is not entirely standardized. Braid and plait do seem to be fairly interchangable, though plait and sinnet seem to also have some overlap. Thus I have been waiting until sorting-out exactly how to handle this in terms of disambiguations, merges, etc. When I have a chance I will post a summary of the references I have access to regarding these terms. --Dfred 19:06, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
