I make this same distinction mentally, at least, although I'm not sure
where I acquired it from.  I think growing up I called everything we made
either frosting or glaze, but then again we didn't ever put anything in
the glaze category on cakes or cookies, which are the things that in my
mind one could potentially put icing on.

As long as I'm here, how about the pair sore/lame (as in, how to describe
how you feel after exercising too much)?  That is, if we're venturing past
the O's.
