What should we call "agile" languages? (warning: troll)

Daniel H Steinberg asks:

I don't really agree with Richard that "agile" is a good name for languages such as Python, Ruby, Perl, and Ruby and Groovy. Perhaps he is right that it is a better name than "scripting" language, but "agile" is already becoming overloaded with meaning. Is there a better name for such languages?

How about "better" languages ;-)

Heh. The "agile" word in the JSR description grabbed my attention as well. I blogged about it and James referred me to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agile_programming_language for the origin of the term.
