It gives the impression that it stands for a buffer where it means a
window that may also display the echo area.  'resize-mini-windows' and
'max-mini-window-height' tried to establish the "mini-windows (the
minibuffer and the echo area)" nomenclature and we now take a step back
in the other direction?

And left MINI in the .texi file.  I spent some time trying to make
manual and doc-strings congruent in this regard ...
