QAM and OFDM are modulations. As you note, QAM is already ambiguous. I guess 
OFDM may become ambiguous once we get the second generation DVB standards.

satellite, terrestrial and cable will become similarly ambiguous. In fact, 
they already are (DVB? ATSC? DMB? ISDB?)

Will we be able to distinguish DVB-C from DVB-C2 automatically?
What if it's not DVB?
