Looking at this old article from EA Concepts made me realize that we may want to have either an entry or a section discussing a cluster of terms that are often used interchangeably or to express related concepts, such as cause, problem, area, intervention, and program. In connection to this, we may also want to rename this entry to just prioritization to remain neutral on the relevant unit of analysis. Let me know if you have any thoughts on this; currently, my very tentative plan is to

  1. Rename this entry.
  2. Have the terminological discussion as a section within this entry.

(A complication is that there are other entries that use the word 'cause', such as cause candidates, criticism of effective altruism causes, less discussed causes, and others. So perhaps we could retain the word 'cause' for this entry, but still have the section on terminology.)
