Matplotlib supports the addition of new transformations that transform
-the data before it is displayed. Separable transformations, that work
-on a single dimension are called "scales", and non-separable
-transformations, that take data in two or more dimensions as input are
+the data before it is displayed. In ``matplotlib`` nomenclature,
+separable transformations, working on a single dimension, are called
+"scales", and non-separable transformations, that take handle data in
+two or more dimensions at a time, are called "projections".
-This document is intended for developers and advanced users who need
-to add more scales and projections to matplotlib.
From the user's perspective, the scale of a plot can be set with
``set_xscale`` and ``set_yscale``. Choosing the projection
currently has no *standardized* method. [MGDTODO]
