I don't think it's imperative that everything is described with absolute correctness.

Centrifugal Force is a term in physics and it's not even really a force, for example.

I'm not saying OAT is the best description, but I don't think it's the worst either.

Bottom line: Why can't OAT just be called "wobble"? Wobble is so much easier to understand and to visualize.

OAT is the reason why there's wobble. This is a science!

From what I've seen out on actual courses (not here on DGCR), most people do just that.
