With the introduction of the family of terms "templated entity", this has mostly been addressed. The remaining open issue is the timing details of the parsing of the complete-class contexts.

Additional notes (August, 2012):

Among the generic entities that should be covered by such a term are default function arguments, as they can be instantiated independently. If issue 1330 is resolved as expected, exception-specifications should also be covered by the same term.

See also issues 1484 and 1626.

Many statements in the Standard apply only to templates, for example, 13.8 [temp.res] paragraph 8:

If no valid specialization can be generated for a template definition, and that template is not instantiated, the template definition is ill-formed, no diagnostic required.

This clearly should apply to non-template member functions of class templates, not just to templates per se. Terminology should be established to refer to these generic entities that are not actually templates.
