Surely the discussion is about the fact that the term "spliced"; if 
closely defined, fails to serve this purpose, for the various reasons 
that have been illustrated. However, custom and usage without specific 
definition, has enabled the term to serve perfectly well for ages and 
can continue to do so. Perhaps the term should apply to compositions 
rather than to performances.
