[pgpool-general: 2167] "On memory" vs. "In memory"

We use a term "on memory" for the name of the query cache
system. However sometime ago, Bruce Momjian has pointed out that "on
memory" is not correct and should be changed to "in memory".  I also
remember that Oracle's new feature "In-Memory option to database 12c".

So my question is, should we entirely replace "on memory" with "in
memory"? Or, considering that we have removed the disk based query
cache system, we should just remove "on memory" from the term "on
memory query cache" and call it simply "query cache"?

Suggestions and opinions are welcome.
