We lack the framework now, but that can change fast. What we can do now, as individuals, is to rethink how we present ourselves and our game to the public.
That requires no framework at all, just a bit of care.
Changing terms and definitions does not change our game at all, it just makes it easyer to understand.
I re-enact modern battles, tactics, potential scenarios and rescue operations. So do you, and for a lot longer than I've been doing it. You know how a few words to someone who does not know the game can appear.
I can start changing what I say, no skin off my back, and the rest will happen with time (or not). But I will have made an effort towards something that makes sense in this day and age.
That's the huge difference between what we SHOULD do and what we CAN do. We can do this, if we try. Official paperwork and group decisions will come later. Right now it's the individuals (us) that count.
