And superblock is also a more or less standard name used by file-system.
I easily imagine difficulties and confusion when discussing UBIFS and
UBI and mixing UBI and UBIFS supersblocks up. IMHO, anything unique is
much better, even if it does not make much sense. E.g., "boss block" or
"pomo block" (pomo = boss in Finnish).

Would you consider picking a different name as well please?
