 To me, this sounds like a possible source of confusion.

 It seems that the only reason why you want 'volume' is to enable typing
 'g.list rast', which isn't enough for me. If we wouldn't change rast to
 raster, there would be no need to change rast3d to volume. So in my view
 we ended up with something worse then we had before just because we
 started to unabbreviate everything. I thought the initial idea was to fix
 only apparently bad parameter names, but this is starting to have large
 consequences - changes in scripts, manual pages, and confusing users.
