Is too 'creative' language acceptable in crystallography?

Abstract

While figures of speech are often useful and even educational, flashy titles combined with hyperbolae and imprecise language can mislead or deceive non-specialist readers and should therefore be avoided. The possibility of such confusion exists when poorly defined terms like ;structure quality' or ;super-resolution' are used to describe a protein structure.
