2: something in the form of a catenary
What you describe is most assuredly not in the form of a catenary beyond third order issues. Catenary is simply not relevant to what you describe and insisting on an inappropriate word simply takes away from what is otherwise a a valid point about the behavior of ground tackle in light air.
Clearly you don't like that. Fine. I won't belabor the point any further.
