Even if the correlation is there, that doesn't mean that you have
synonyms. Just like "basketball player" doesn't *mean* "tall person".
I'd side with Lucas on this one ("Bright" is a synonym for smart, but
"Brights" is a marketing term). But it doesn't really matter as the term
doesn't appear in the article -- Jeff just used in the subject line.
