Hi folks,

This bug devolved into bikeshedding long ago. Consistency is the most
important consideration here, not the actual term that's used. It's
important that we make a choice and stick to it, ASAP. So, I'm sure that
alternative choices like "bin" would be just as good, and I'm sure
everyone has a wonderful justification for why their favourite term
should be used, but a decision has been made, and the approved term in
Ubuntu is now "Rubbish Bin". This term is clearly recognizable to
British English speakers (comment #64, thanks for working on this Alan),
and if you're really searching for justification then the addition of
the word "rubbish" should clarify the meaning of the term to non-
British-English speakers (notably, tech support workers).

*** Final decision: "Rubbish Bin". ***
