Owen Gingerich, an astronomer at Harvard University in Cambridge,
Massachusetts, and chair of the IAU committee that created the ['pluton'] definition, says that they were aware of its usage amongst geologists, but unaware of its importance to the field. "Since the term is not in the MS Word or the WordPerfect spell checkers, we thought it was not that common," Gingerich wrote in an e-mail to The geologic definition of the word does appear in common dictionaries, including the Oxford English.

I wonder if he'd be cool with repurposing the word "albedo," or any of the other countless astronomical terms that Microsoft Word's spellchecker doesn't recognize.
